InsurTech NY, insurance innovation community in the New York City area, will launch an accelerator for growth-stage insurtech startup companies this October. David Gritz, InsurTech NY Managing Director says participants "will benefit from a dedicated advocate to help them navigate the partnership process with insurance carriers and brokers.” Applications can be filed in late July from growth-stage startups that have revenue and customers. Focusing on traction, talent, and financing, the companies will get access to mentoring and assistance from companies including Nassau Re. "New York is known as the home to three InsurTech unicorns: Lemonade, Oscar, and Policy Genius," said Paul Tyler, CMO of Nassau Re. "We hope to use the InsurTech NY platform to find and support the next set of InsurTech unicorns."
