Startup Soirée Podcast Episode No. 001

Thanks for coming to check out the very first Startup Soirée Podcast! Our first guest is Marc DeLeonibus from QuotePie. Here's a little more about Marc and QuotePie....

The Startup Soirée Podcast interviews Founders about what makes them tic, how they start their day and what inspires them to keep going. 

A little bit about Marc and QuotePie...

Marc DeLeonibus is the Founder and CEO of QuotePie and a Graduate of the Virginia Tech, Pamplin College of Business B.S. Finance. Before starting QuotePie in December 2013 he spent over 4.5 years in the commercial insurance industry on the broker side.  During that time Marc realized that the process that a business has to go through to buy insurance for their business was terribly inefficient and confusing. Marc knew that this process could be drastically improved, and that is how QuotePie came to be.

QuotePie is a powerful web-based insurance marketplace that allows business owners to connect with property and casualty insurance agents from across the country. Its proprietary platform creates a culture of transparent competition within the insurance industry that can be leveraged to achieve the best insurance coverage at a highly competitive price.

To put it simply QuotePie makes it really easy for businesses to shop for insurance quotes for their business.  (The type of insurance that we are talking about is: General Liability, Commercial Property, Commercial Auto, Workers Comp, Professional Liability, ETC.)
