We Help Turn Your New Venture into a High-Growth Business
Are you a high potential and driven early stage startup? Do you know how best to leverage the most relevant innovative technology advancements of today to drive value creation? Are you interested by property, vehicle, travel, health, life and pension as well as new or more complex forms of insurance?
Today, the insurance market is going through a massive transformation triggered by new customer demands and expectations, the ubiquity of digital technologies, permanent social engagements, and the need to innovate. It is easier and cheaper today to set up a lean business. And with current legacy constraints, no insurer can afford to ignore current market dynamics.
Startupbootcamp InsurTech is the first truly global insurance accelerator working alongside a large portfolio of leading insurance players to foster disruptive and collaborative insurance innovation from early stage startups. Each year, we select the 10 most promising insurance technology startups from around the world and help them grow.

Why We Exist
InsurTech is the most dynamic part of the FinTech industry. The global insurance market is going through unprecedented change. Constrained by their siloed cultures, major insurance corporations are looking to better connect with customers and explore the transformative potential of the latest technology trends. They can’t do it alone — they need your help.
From blockchain to drones, data analysis to crowdfunded insurance, Internet of Things to genome technology to wearables…where there’s an exciting new technology, there’s a way it can revolutionize insurance — with huge potential benefits for the industry, startups, and society.
Perfect Your Pitch & Get Traction
After three months of acceleration, you’ll present to 500+ investors, mentors, partners, and media during Demo Day. You get invaluable pitch training and support from the best in the industry so you can present with confidence, and this starts on Selection Days.
Post acceleration, the support doesn’t end. We continue to create opportunities for you to speak at insurance-related events and connect you to a growing network of industry experts, mentors, investors, and other startups even after you are done.

Alumni/Partner Case Studies
Startupbootcamp InsurTech Alumni, Adapt Ready Aerobotics, and NuvaLaw, sit down to discuss experiences in the accelerator program and working with corporate partner XL Catlin.
“Getting a chance to meeting all of the corporate partners of Startupbootcamp InsurTech, such as XL Catlin, the decision became a no brainer for us. Startupbootcamp InsurTech is a very well structured and thoughtfully-designed program. What is particularly helpful for us is getting mentorship from the corporate partners, such as XL Catlin.” — Shruthi Rao, CEO & Co-Founder, Adapt Ready
“XL Catlin were part and parcel of the whole program…they were there with us throughout from day 1 all the way to the end. The Startupbootcamp InsurTech outcomes for us are that you come away with an insurance business proposition, which is what many of us wanted going into it. XL Catlin got in pretty fast, so we met them and we had a Memorandum of Understanding signed within about six weeks of starting the program.” — Oli Bunting, MD – Insurance, Aerobotics
“The bootcamp was a tough one…but what was nice was that there was a continuous interaction between the different cohorts themselves…One of the roles that the partners played…was to expose us to their companies, so having interviews with us, and identifying where we could work with a company like XL Catlin.” — Willie Pienaar, Chief Executive, NuvaLaw
