War Stories Working with InsurTech Startups

About this Event
InsurTech NY Event
Working with InsurTech startups has quickly become the mantra of insurance innovation leaders & forward-thinking business units. However, it goes without saying - how do you do it?

Procurement departments & budgeting cycles for legacy carriers & brokers are designed to work with large vendors like IBM, Guidewire, & Corelogic. Further, startups typically run on a clock-cycle of weeks or months, which does not match the traditional quarterly planning process.

To overcome these hurdles, carriers & brokers often have to develop creative workarounds to be startup-friendly. The traditional bridge has been for an innovation group to manage a proof of concept or POC to introduce the startup into the organization. This POC process fails more than 75% of the time.

Hear war stories from InsurTechs & insurance carriers with experience working on these projects. Panelists from insurers & InsurTechs will discuss how to make it through the process & what happens after a successful POC.

(Complimentary hors d'oeuvres & drinks will be served)

5:30 pm Registration & Networking
6:00 pm Panel Discussion
7:00 pm Networking & Refreshments

We are pulling together a cast of technologists & founders that have been in the trenches & been through the entire process. More great panelists to be announced.
