Everything your old
insurer isn’t.

We started Hiro with a simple vision: we’re going to be the most technologically advanced insurer on the planet.

We’re surrounded by technology that would have seemed like magic only decades ago. So why does your old insurance behave like it’s stuck in the ‘90s?

Hiro is about putting that technology to work to actively protect your home and family, instead of just waiting for bad things to happen and then trying to fix them with money.

Sure, we do payouts like any other insurer – but our vision is that one day, you won’t even need them.

“Did you know the first home insurers owned and operated the first professional fire brigades? They would literally come to your house and put the fire out. That was 400 years ago. Now imagine that with 2021 technology.”

– CEO & Co-Founder Krystian Zajac
