Zurich launches InsurTech startup competition

Written by Peter Walker

Zurich Insurance Group has launched the Zurich Innovation World Championship, a global competition to collaborate with the brightest and best InsurTech start-ups and entrepreneurs.

The competition focuses on start-ups with established products or services, and will provide the winners with the opportunity to apply their solutions to Zurich’s customers in selected countries.

Running in more than 20 countries worldwide, the Championship is looking for start-ups in the fields of mobility, smart homes and buildings, digital health and financial planning. The closing date is 30 September, 2018.

Giovanni Giuliani, group chief strategy, innovation and business development officer, commented: “Zurich is committed to being a ground-breaking customer-led insurer and wants to accelerate the transformation of its business model by refocusing its offerings to ensure they meet the needs of today’s digital-savvy customers.”

The winners of the North America, Latin America, Europe and Middle East and Asia Pacific regional rounds will then take part in a final global competition. The final round will take place in February 2019, with the bronze, silver and gold winners each receiving the resources to implement a pilot program with Zurich customers.

Winners will be selected by juries of subject matter experts, innovation leaders and senior business executives.
