Chubb offers a wide spectrum of commercial (e.g., property, general liability, workers compensation) and specialty (e.g., employment practices liability, professional liability, and crime) insurance solutions.

Insurance coverage from top-rated Chubb can help protect against these risks.

Edward Lowe Foundation

The Edward Lowe Foundation is a national, nonprofit organization that supports entrepreneurship through research, recognition and educational programs, which are delivered through entrepreneur support organizations (ESOs). Established in 1985, the foundation focuses on second-stage companies — those that have moved beyond the startup phase and seek significant, steady growth.

Among our educational programs are leader retreats, held at our 2,600-acre learning campus near Cassopolis, Michigan. These retreats help entrepreneurs address critical challenges encountered in second stage, such as building a management team, developing infrastructure, creating a strong company culture and achieving profitable growth. Each course builds upon the previous one and revolves around inflection points: how your organization is changing, how your team is changing and how you as a leader are responding to these changes. In addition, the foundation provides chapter chair training and advanced facilitator programs that are focused on making peer groups more effective.
