About Us

Archipelago is an AI-driven technology and data analytics company that is re-envisioning how commercial property risks are understood and managed by their owners and operators, and how brokers and insurers efficiently connect to these risks to deliver innovative services and coverage solutions to their customers. Archipelago customers transcend archaic market practices of using spreadsheet, emails, and attachments to communicate their exposures and risk during insurance placements.  

Across the value-chain, from major property owners to their brokers and insurers, the Archipelago platform is rewiring market practices from a world of fragmented and latent data, ad-hoc spreadsheets, emails, and documents to a modern digital risk fabric.

Our team is made up of seasoned executives in risk and insurance, structural engineers, risk engineers, data scientists, and innovators from the data analytics and software industries.
