Accelerate your success

The Global Insurance Accelerator is a mentor-driven business accelerator designed to foster innovation in the insurance industry by supporting insurtech startups targeting the global insurance industry.

Startups: this is not your typical accelerator. Our investors are insurance carriers, our mentors are primarily insurance executives. Participating with our program is a highly strategic decision to find product-market fit and do customer discovery faster than you could ever do on your own.



We work with early-stage insurtech companies who are building
solutions to support the insurance industry. We operate an equity program in the spring and a non-equity program in the fall.



Equity-based program perks:

  • Investment with founder-friendly terms: $75k in the form of a post-money SAFE that converts to 5% of the company; no board seat
  • Currated meetings with 75+ insurance-focused mentors in program; dozens more after
  • Final presentations @ Global Insurance Symposium (~600 attendees in 2019)
  • Additional exposure at industry conferences
  • One-bedroom, residential-style suite at the Staybridge Suites, with amenities including daily breakfast, nightly dinner, gym, pool, and laundry (104 nights / 2-minute walk from GIA / housing covered by investment)
  • Office space for your entire team
  • Typical accelerator perks (deals on hosting, marketing tools, etc)
  • Stocked fridge at the GIA office
  • Founders need to be in Des Moines during the program, business-related travel is supported (program schedule)
