Description

Welcome, GIA Board Members to our fifth annual InsurTech Week!

This registration page is specifically for GIA Board Bembers, so please don't distribute. I have a separate registration that is for our mentors, insurtechs, and the public.

InsurTech Week is an opportunity for the insurance industry to participate in a number of innovation activities with the Global Insurance Accelerator. The activities include innovation presentations, co-working, networking, education and matchmaking for pilots and capital.

We're so thankful and excited that your companies helped select a group of early/growth-stage companies to highlight the week as featured insurtech companies. These selected companies take advantage of promotional, co-working and networking opportunities as well as subsidized hotel costs. You can view those selected companies HERE.

InsurTech Week is free and open to the public and the activities are designed to connect professionals with innovative companies through one-on-one meetings, presentations and networking activities.

See the schedule below, and register to the right. You can register for everything all on this single page! Please note different locations around Des Moines.
