At Hiscox, we believe that having the courage to embrace risk is critical to business success. Very simply put, anything worth having, in business or otherwise, comes with a little risk. Whether it's borrowing money to grow your business, championing a new product, or hiring more employees – all business owners have to accept some risk. Facing that risk is what makes success possible, but it also requires courage.
