Hartford Insurtech Hub Demo Day
The Hartford Insurtech Hub’s inaugural Demo Day, held on April 18, attracted a cohort of 10 startups from Canada, Europe and India focused on improving the insurance value chain for health, life and P&C companies.
The three-month program, administered by Startupbootcamp, began last September with intentions of attracting and retaining global technology talent in the city of Hartford. At least three participants have launched operations in the city due to their involvement in the accelerator.
Organizers looked to create opportunities for carriers to network with new companies. A total of five insurtechs secured pilots with founding insurance partners, which included the likes of USAA, Travelers, The Hartford and Cigna. Research and consulting firm Deloitte was also announced as a program partner and mentor on Demo Day.
Startups had five minutes each to pitch insurers on the value they would bring their organizations. The following is a snapshot of each insurtech’s pitch on stage at the Bushnell Theatre in Hartford, CT.
