The Indie Business Network has worked with Veracity Insurance Services for over a decade to provide affordable, accessible product liability insurance to Makers and Handmade Entrepreneurs across North America. Today, we are pleased to announce that Veracity is the Presenting Sponsor of Maker Mastermind: Nashville.
This is a critical offering because, without product liability insurance, Makers cannot be easily considered to sell their products in maker shows, trade shows, craft fairs, in retail stores, in subscription boxes, and at online websites — most of which require an insurance certificate.
They also run the risk of being sued without coverage if a consumer who uses one of their products claims to have been injured.
Originally designed to cover soaps and cosmetics, the mutually beneficial and long-standing collaboration between the Indie Business Network and Veracity Insurance Services has expanded over the years to include coverage for a variety of additional products and services.
What is Veracity Insurance Services?
Veracity Insurance Services is a boutique insurance brokerage firm providing insurance coverage options for entrepreneurs who make the products they sell. The members of the Veracity team have a keen and long-established appreciation for the contribution artisan entrepreneurs make to the economy.
The insurance coverage products Veracity offers are rare finds in a litigious world that is more accustomed to serving multi-million dollar corporations than makers and local micro-entrepreneurs.
In addition to coverage for soaps and cosmetics products, through IBN, Veracity offers affordable coverage for:
• nail polish
• insect repellent
• teas and other artisan-made beverages
• honey and condiments
• cakes, muffins, cookies and desserts
• wood carvings
• paintings of all kinds
Coverage is also available for service providers like estheticians, makeup artists, aromatherapists, and massage therapists.
If you make it or offer it on a small scale, chances are good that IBN’s program, through Veracity, can cover it.
We are honored and grateful that Veracity is generously sharing its resources to support our mission to deliver an unforgettable entrepreneurial Mastermind experience in Nashville.
