FM Global is an insurance company that exclusively insures large commercial properties, such as large industrial and manufacturing properties, commercial buildings, hospitals, college campuses, government complexes, power plants etc. We are a multinational company based in Johnston, RI with 5,000+ global employees in offices across the globe.
FM Global had a unique, non-traditional engineering based business model that arise from our belief that majority of property losses are preventable. While most insurance assess and price the risk based on historical losses (actuarial model), we use engineering and risk assessment at the individual location level to underwrite the risk and determine terms (premiums, limits etc.) FM Global has a large engineering force that regularly inspect our client’s locations. We collect thousands of data points for each location and we use this data to evaluate risks and recommend improvements to reduce risk to our client's property.
We would like to develop a custom briefing on Robotics to explore how might we or our clients use robotics to manage and mitigate risks in Industrial settings. Robotics use cases fall under the following broad areas of application:
Our preference is to work with later stage startups, but open to talking to early startups based on problem-solution fit and data security review.
