Event description



On the 18th of September, The InsurTech Accelerator, part of Hartford InsurTech Hub powered by Startupbootcamp welcomes you to Bangalore for Office Hours as part of our international tour to find the best rising insurtech companies.

The event is free of charge and aims to connect interesting startups with our ecosystem to receive feedback and mentorship from Startupbootcamp leadership and local industry mentors. Our goal is to learn more about the most promising Insurtech startups in the marketplace for our program while providing valuable mentoring.

Please be aware that only 10 teams from all registrations will be chosen for the event.

The feedback sessions will answer any questions the startups may have, including: how to fundraise? What is the value of an acceleration program? How strong is my business model? How to engage in projects with the program partners? You will also learn more about our Hartford-based program.

The event is also a great opportunity to receive an invitation to our Selection Days, and potentially become one of the ten teams to enter our 2019 programs.
