Starting, running and growing any business is full of risks – at any moment, some unexpected setback might threaten its very existence.

Whether you are operating a conventional business, e-commerce, or a combination of the two, you face a fast-moving environment in which your aim is to grow your enterprise. With that growth, come ever-increasing business risks. And to safeguard your enterprise against those risks, you need business insurance.

What makes Superscript different?

Where superscript differs from other, standard forms of business insurance is the way it is designed to grow with your business in a fast-changing world.

Regular forms of business insurance typically provide cover against your chosen risks for a whole year and you renew the cover on a fixed renewal date.

But a let can happen in that year. As your business grows, so the risks may change both in their nature and their scope. New perils – which might not have bothered your nascent business – open up beneath your feet. Your business needs the flexibility of a rapid response to meet those risks.

That’s where the innovative approach of Superscript may pay dividends. Not only are their policies highly-tailored to meet your specific business needs but they are also super-flexible. The insurance you need – which is likely to change several times in the space of a year – comes by way of a monthly subscription, which may be altered, amended or even cancelled, at any time.

The risks

Superscript offers insurance which keeps pace with the ups, downs and growth of your business in a way that matches the changing risks you might encounter. It does so by giving you a selection of cover that includes:
