A Message from our Founder, Steve Scimone


Venture Underwriting Owner Circle


“I built this company on the backs of bad service. Hold on, I’ll explain. My beginning in this business started in 2003, my freshman year of undergrad, when I plucked a job posting ad for an Insurance Inspector off the student union bulletin board. No more than one year later I had assembled a 5-person team that serviced 11 Inspection Companies across 24 counties in New York State. It was Immediately clear to me that The Customer Experience is the key to professional growth, and consequently, success. As an Insurance Inspector, you have a unique perspective of The Customer Experience as both the companies you represent as well as the policyholders you interact with are, effectively, your customer. While performing our duties, I noticed It wasn’t my team’s attention to detail that mattered so much, as it was how much we cared during the thousands of the interactions we had with people on a monthly basis. Some companies we serviced, large or small, knew how important The Customer Experience was and it was clear based on how we were treated by our Field Managers and by their positive attitude towards the policyholder. Surprisingly though, an equal number of companies did not know, or did not care to invest in The Customer Experience. The poor way we were treated, and the poor perception of their customer’s policyholders was indicative of that. It was those unhealthy company cultures and the damaging level of service by those companies where I learned the most valuable lessons of how to be a shocking competitor in this business. Whether you’re a C-Suite ranking executive, an Independent Agent, a Field Inspector, or anyone, price and quality might get you a foot in the door. Service earns you a seat at the table. Venture Underwriting holds The Customer Experience and Customer Service higher than just an extension number on our phones. We make it an attribute that has transcended across our company culture. My mission to my customer is to leverage technology, relationships, and an appreciation for all of those we work with and those we meet for the purpose of creating long lasting partnerships built on trust, accountability, and results.” – Stephen Scimone, CEO.
