Delos Selected for TechCrunch Disrupt Startup Battlefield Competition

Earlier this month, Delos had the great honor of competing in the exclusive TechCrunch Startup Battlefield, at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference in San Francisco. Delos was selected among the less than 3% of startups that applied to pitch. TechCrunch News also wrote a feature article about the company (read it here:

As CEO Kevin Stein presented on the main stage, in front of a capacity of thousands (plus many more watching via livestream), he conveyed why Delos matters to such a broad range of people. Not only is Delos working to help millions of homeowners to afford the insurance that they need, but Delos is also truly impacting disaster safety, housing stability, the real estate economy, smarter community planning, and climate resilience.

Immediately after presenting, the Delos team began receiving messages from people who saw the pitch. Many reached out to us to share how the wildfire insurance crisis has directly impacted them and their loved ones, and how excited they are for Delos to be able to help.

As Delos reaches a wider and wider audience, it’s becoming ever more clear how urgently our solution is needed. The Delos team continues to push forward in getting our innovations to the growing number of communities that badly need it.

CEO Monthly Selects Kevin Stein as Insurance CEO of the Year in California

We are very happy to announce that CEO Monthly has selected our CEO, Kevin Stein, as the CEO of the year in California! Here is the statement on Kevin and Delos:

“Kevin Stein is the CEO of Delos Insurance, a property insurance MGA for wildfire-exposed regions. Delos’ proprietary wildfire underwriting models outpace the industry in risk prediction. Innovation in insurance is typically constrained to incremental improvement, often because innovators cannot fold disruptive technology into the industry’s economic lifeblood. However, Kevin has surmounted this challenge by leveraging his background as an Aerospace Engineer and career-long experience in delivering return-driving solutions. Delos has meshed the worlds of wildfire science academia, big data analytics, actuarial science, insurance program development, and risk management to create one of the most innovative solutions in the industry today.”

Katherine Benton, Awards Coordinator, put out this statement on the award:

“From showing sure and certain management of a business enterprise, to displaying integrity and tenacity in the face of adversity or considerate corporate governance and a commitment to society, the Global CEO Excellence Awards is returning for its 4th year to celebrate the business leaders of today. I am proud of all of my winners for their hard work and commitment and I wish them the best of luck in the future.”
