About Archipelago


As the frequency and quantity of risks increase in the world, the need to protect people and property in the face of disasters has never been more acute. Transparency surrounding the characteristics and resilience of commercial properties enables owners, risk managers, as well as insurers to create a safer, more sustainable environment. There are many details about commercial property that inform risk. The founders of Archipelago envision a streamlined platform where those details and supporting evidence are aggregated, interpreted, enriched, transformed, and shared. This platform makes it easier for owners, brokers, and carriers to make decisions to reduce the risk and increase the resilience of commercial property. 

Archipelago is committed to unlocking the power of better data. Learn more about the Archipelago platform
