Making the InsurTech POC work (for real)

About this Event

InsurTech NY Event Details

More than 200 InsurTechs were minted in 2019. The vast majority of those InsurTechs were created to support existing legacy carriers, not to sell direct to consumer. As a result, their existence depends on an insurance carrier or broker implementing their technology.

However, insurance carriers and brokers are risk adverse and slow to implement new technologies or even update their own existing technologies. Many are still running some instances of legacy software custom built before 1980. New tech vs. legacy tech is a classic clash the happens in any industry.

Proof of Concepts or POCs have been seen as the panacea for overcoming this age old technology transition challenge. However, as any experienced founder will tell you, the POC is not the end all. In fact, most POCs fail or never yield a workable outcome for either party.

This panel will explore how to make a POC work for real. Panelists from insurers and InsurTechs will discuss how to make it through the process and what happens after a successful POC.
