Our mission is to help you know who is staying in your house, and that you are fully protected when something goes wrong

We founded Safely because we saw a trust-shaped gap in the sharing economy that just needed to be filled.

We saw sophisticated homeowners leave a second home empty for 48 weeks each year because they did not want Internet strangers sleeping in their bed, and using their dishes. This makes complete sense to us.

We began studying this Internet stranger anxiety to help our friends earn income from an asset they already had. How can we use our expertise in travel distribution, technology, and data science to improve the chance of a safe stay?

We created new products with some of the world’s best insurance carriers and background check providers, and found the best data, and created our own data to help the entire vacation home rental be a safer place.

MetLife selected Safely to join their inaugural Digital Accelerator powered by Techstars

MetLife is a global insurance carrier and one of the world’s most respected companies. Techstars is the worldwide network that helps entrepreneurs succeed.

We worked with, and became friends with, nine other Insurtech companies from around the globe to fine-tune our trust and safety services, create entirely new services which we have been launching ever since we graduated, and do our part to shake up the insurance industry.

While in the Techstars Accelerator, we doubled the number of professional property managers we protect, and developed the data framework for our Safely Score.
