Agency Launch Program

Establishing the Foundation for Agency Success!

MAIA's Agency Launch Program was created as a development and training opportunity for "new agencies" in the independent insurance industry.

The Agency Launch program is a two-year commitment between MAIA and the new agency designed to expose the Principal agent and select staff to resources and necessary education to establish a foundation for success.

To mark milestones in the program, the new agency is granted sub-agent access to personal lines markets with sponsoring carriers. These personal lines carriers help to support the agency with access to auto and home markets and sponsorship of program costs.

The Goal

To increase a new agency's likelihood of success through education, professional advice, and market access.
