About the Company

Gathering experience from some of the top schools and companies Kalepa is a tech-driven start-up re-imagining the trillion-dollar commercial insurance industry. Our cross-functional teams leverage AI, cutting-edge tech and tons of data to deliver the right coverage at the right price for every business.

Why We're Here:

For years businesses have tried to find the right policy in order to protect themselves and their employees. However, commercial insurance is plagued with a big problem...businesses and insurers don’t trust each other! This leads to a lot of economic waste and missed opportunities across all industries with little resolution...

Insurers find it hard to understand the true exposures of businesses and to profitably provide them with policies that reflect that true risk. Businesses struggle to find the coverage they need and are often left underinsured, uninsured, or paying higher rates than needed.

Our Copilot technology platform and Copilot-powered MGA combine Human and Artificial Intelligence to address this foundational issue head on, bringing commercial insurance to the Efficient Frontier where businesses and insurers work with a single version of the truth and collaborate to mitigate risk. It’s the way insurance should work.
