Connecting great InsurTech companies
with great insurance leaders.

InsurTech Week is an opportunity for InsurTech companies at any stage to engage with GIA investors and mentors.

What is InsurTech Week?

Once a year, the Global Insurance Accelerator hosts 10-15 up-and-coming InsurTech companies for a week-long insurance immersion program. InsurTech Week differs from the traditional GIA Accelerator Program in that there is no equity exchange and no residency requirement, making participation possible for entrepreneurs at every stage.

When is InsurTech Week 2017?

InsurTech Week 2017 runs October 23-27. The selected companies typically arrive on Monday and head home on Friday. We have events planned for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday as well as the opportunity to meet 1:1 with companies throughout the week.

How do I get involved?

1. Attend one of the public events
2. Set up 1:1 meetings with one or more of the selected companies (on-site or remotely)
During the GIA's accelerator program, we do "mentor speed dating" whereby our mentors spend 30 minutes with each startup. While that may not be feasible with 15 companies attending InsurTech Week, you can pick and choose which ones you'd like to meet here:
Please follow the direction on the page to schedule time.

3. If you are a mentor, please join us for this private networking event

I'll be traveling to Des Moines for the event. What days should I book travel?

You are welcome to spend an entire week in Des Moines, but we understand that isn't feasible for most of you. The best travel dates would be to arrive in Des Moines Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning and stay through the Thursday lunch. Our office (map link) is near lots of hotels. Uber can get you to and from the airport.

Did I hear you are expecting a fair number of regulators and compliance professionals?

Yes! The GIA strongly believes that InsurTech without regulation is like peanut butter and jelly without the peanut butter. We have built a great relationship with the Iowa Insurance Division through our journey and greatly value their support, mentorship and insight. We have reached out to insurance commissioner offices across all 50 states and our friends at the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) to bring commissioners, regulators and other compliance professionals to the event.
