Disruptive Risk Management Platform Offerings

In business theory, an innovation is disruptive when it creates a new market and value network and eventually disrupts an existing market and value network, displacing established market-leading firms, products, and alliances.

The NCRMA model will drive value and protection to the business owners/operators through the combination of influence and a totally effective risk management approach.


Today’s risk management approach is traditional and limiting… the NCRMA approach, like cannabis, is innovative, and will displace the norm through unparalleled member experience.
