Innovation and acceleration
for a trillion dollar industry.

Be a part of the insurance industry's accelerator.

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 take in early-stage insurtech companies who are building
solutions to support the insurance industry.

Founder-friendly term sheet: common stock, no board seat
