Event Details

The insurance ecosystem is experiencing growth and innovation like never before. In 2018, capital investment in InsurTech reached $3.1B worldwide, almost double the $1.6B invested in 2017. In Q1 2019, funding reached $1.7B, a 141% increase from Q1 2018 investment. Driven by the influx of capital that has flowed into the sector in recent years, the next generation of tech innovation has emerged to improve processes along the entire value chain and cater to evolving customer expectations. New business models, technologies, and services have rapidly developed, revolutionizing the insurance industry at an unprecedented pace.

 

As 2019 unfolds, the industry has reached an inflection point: Are these new solutions actually enabling better results, improved experiences and happier customers? How can incumbent insurers work together with InsurTechs to build successful partnerships?

 

Join us for our 8th InsurTech event to meet the founders, investors, and experts that are spearheading the industry’s digital transformation and shaping the future of the insurance ecosystem. This curated panel of experts will each share their unique perspectives on the current state of InsurTech, where the industry is headed, as well as how to gear up for scale in the competitive insurance landscape. As innovative InsurTechs continue to grow, what are effective strategies for expansion and building a scale-up ecosystem that works? What are the challenges to growth and how can they be addressed? These industry leaders are pioneering the future of InsurTech and can’t wait to share the insights and knowledge that will help entrepreneurs, innovators and practitioners alike prepare for the next growth phase.  

We are extremely pleased to present you with our panel of experts:

  • Jonathan Matus — Founder and CEO of Zendrivea mission-driven company, working to make roads safer with data and analytics.
  • Martha Notaras — Partner at XL Innovate, a venture capital fund focused on creating ventures that provide new and innovative solutions to risk.
