Learn more about Insurtech Advisors and how we can help you:

The mission of Insurtech Advisors is to provide our member Carriers with a way to grow, protect, and add innovation into their business models through regular interaction with and strategic investments in early stage Insurtechs.  Our aim is to take full advantage of the strengths that Insurance Carriers and early stage Insurtech startups bring to the market and set the stage for a powerful collaboration.

The key to our success is the individual approach Insurtech Advisors takes with each member Carrier.  It ensures that each Carrier understands the vast changes occurring in the external market - both from a client and customer perspective as well as from the competitive marketplace of Insurtech startups.

We help you assess your strengths and opportunities against the potential benefits of various startups within the Insurtech ecosystem.  We then provide you with a curated list of Insurtechs specifically targeted to your needs.  We provide the introductions and help you select a few Insurtechs to partner with and execute Proofs of Concepts.
