About Huckleberry

We're building the simplest, quickest, most user-friendly platform for small business owners to access insurance

Mission

At Huckleberry, we’re on a mission to give small business owners back time. Over the last decade, software has replaced most paper-based business management systems – from accounting, to tax preparation, to payments. But commercial insurance is still bought and managed almost entirely offline, in a process that can involve layers of bureaucracy and take weeks to complete.

We want to change all that, by building elegant business insurance products that are simple, easy to use, and fully digital.

Leadership

  • Bryan O'Connell

    CEO

    Bryan's career has spanned insurance and tech - he started out in the actuarial department of Canada Life, before joining a San Francisco based venture capital fund where he invested in technology startups. On the weekends, he can generally be found testing the limits of his health insurance on a pair of skis.

    Bryan holds a first class honors degree in Actuarial Science from University College Dublin and an MBA from Harvard Business School.

  • Steve Au

    CTO

    Steve brings over 17 year of consumer and enterprise technology experience to Huckleberry, most recently leading product and software engineering at Breathometer. He's an avid cyclist, but these days is more likely to be chasing his four-year old around the living room than chasing the peloton up an incline.

    Steve holds a BA in Architecture from the University of California at Berkeley.

  • Andrew Huynh

    VP Data Science

    Realizing the positive correlation between college drop-outs and startup success, Andrew left UC San Diego's PhD program in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence just shy of completing his dissertation to move to San Francisco and build companies. He recently perfected the art of one armed coding, after his preferred sport of rock climbing gave him yet another broken bone.

    Andrew holds a BS in Computer Science from the University of California, San Diego.
