Startupbootcamp InsurTech London

Acceleration Begins in 80 Days

We Help Turn Your New Venture into a High-Growth Business

Are you a high potential and driven early stage start-up? 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 start-ups. Each year, we select the 10 most promising insurance technology start-ups 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, start-ups, and society.
