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.

No less than $50k equity-based investment

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.
