After moving to Silicon Valley, Andrew experienced the costly and painful process of fixing things around his condo. But why fix, when you can prevent? So he founded Sheltr, a "physical for your home" preventative maintenance startup that grew to become a leader in major US cities and was acquired by Hippo Insurance – all in less than a year.
