As part of our fast-growing Tech & High Growth ecosystem, we’re delighted to announce we’re partnering the Insurtech business that’s ripping up the rule book: Superscript.
Since launching in 2015, Superscript have earned an enviable reputation as major disrupters in a traditionally risk-averse sector. Creating great products and a seamless experience to match, Superscript’s popular monthly subscription model (who needs cumbersome annual premiums) now covers over 1,000 business types.
By definition, Superscript is elevating the entire business insurance experience by providing cover that’s tailored to businesses rather than providing a one-size-fits-all-take-it-or-leave-it approach.
With four core values: unafraid, unassuming, unexpected and unstoppable, Superscript are, well, unrivalled in their commitment to using inspiring tech to create brilliant products.
An eye-catching and impactful above-the-line ad campaign is ensuring Superscript is on everyone’s lips.
As part of Cooper Parry’s growing partner ecosystem, Superscript joins Tech Nation, Crowdcube, CapDesk, and StartUp CFO.
Steve Leith, our Head of Tech & High Growth, describes why Superscript is such a complementary partner:
“Scale-ups need advisers who understand the challenges of rapid growth. They need to be working with products and services that take away the hassle factor, and are tailored to the speed at which they are moving.
Superscript’s approach to insurance is a classic case in point. It ensures that businesses enjoy effective cover that is focused, flexible and financially on point.
With exclusive preferential insurance rates available to Cooper Parry clients, Superscript’s offer is just part of a wide-range of services, support and advice that adds perspective, experience and value.”

HOW ELSE DO WE SUPPORT GROWING BUSINESSES?
We understand that businesses in their growth stage (from Early Stage to Scale Up and beyond) face a variety of different challenges and don’t have a lot of time to surface them and solve them. Our Tech & High Growth team seek to understand strategy and trajectory first, after which we can quickly flush out expansion and finance-related challenges they should (and shouldn’t) be worrying about.
Most commonly these include:
1) Centralising where they are taking advice from and ensuring there is a single relationship through which they can access joined-up support at speed; appointing a new adviser experienced in the growth space who can cover audit and tax-related matters commonly associated with venture and private equity funded businesses is a necessary step to support growth plans
2) Joining up this work with their R&D claims process to drive cost and time savings;
3) Supporting their fundraising activity at Series A or Series B with our specialist Raising Finance team; or
4) Getting the business “diligence ready” by surfacing and dealing with issues around corporate expansion, including international aspects like market entry, transfer pricing and IP considerations, employing people across borders, permanent establishment issues, cross border VAT and sales-taxes, and share option planning.
