Asurion was started by two Stanford graduates in 1995. Kevin Taweel and Jim Ellis put together the money to acquire a roadside assistance company called Road Rescue. The service was sold through wireless carriers. After that acquisition, they were able to purchase the Merrimac Group (which was based in Nashville) four years later. That company provided specialty insurance for cell phones. In 2003, Asurion began expanding internationally starting with Asia. Products and services provided by Asurion include insurance for smartphones, tablets, consumer electronics, satellite receivers, major appliances, and jewelry. As of 2014, the company was serving more than 280 million consumers.
Asurion began international expansion in 2003, starting with offices in Asia. They expanded into Europe in 2008 and then Australia in 2013. A year later, they entered into a partnership with America Movil to expand their reach into Latin America. Although Asurion is a private company, they recently partnered with an app called Simplr, which was part of an investment buy-in that totaled $8 million.
