July 19, 2019

Hartford InsurTech Hub, powered by Startupbootcamp, has opened applications for the third year of its accelerator program.

Insurance Technology (InsurTech) startups that have shown strong traction and are looking to connect with several of the biggest insurance companies in the U.S. are encouraged to apply. Applications will close on October 4th.

Having gone through Hartford InsurTech Hub’s Accelerator program previously, several of the startups in the 2018 and 2019 cohorts have begun partnerships with large insurance companies. Some of the success stories include:

  • Aureus Analytics, a customer intelligence and experience company, has secured pilots with several insurers including several program partners;
  • Rozie AI has an AI (artificial intelligence) platform that designs personalized customer engagement and business intelligence services for enterprises. The company has completed a proof of concept and is exploring a pilot with a U.S. insurer and a claims organization;
  • Dream Payments offers a cloud platform of configurable tools that automates claims payments through its digital platform, paying customers and vendors quickly and securely;
  • Pineapple provides social insurance. Users can get insured with the snap of a picture and get their unused premium back at the end of the year.

For the duration of the three-month accelerator program, the 10 selected startups will relocate to Hartford, Conn., and become an integral part of the city’s growing innovation and InsurTech ecosystem. Startups will have the opportunity to scale through collaboration with Startupbootcamp’s network of insurance companies, investors and industry expert mentors.

The Hartford InsurTech Hub, powered by Startupbootcamp, is an initiative established in 2017 by Hartford insurance companies, the city of Hartford and CTNext. Focused on addressing the need for attracting new technologies and talent in insurance and technology into the city of Hartford and the local ecosystem, the program partners include Cigna, The Hartford, Travelers, CTNext, Capgemini, USAA, White Mountains, Aetna and Clyde & Co. It plans to stretch its reach to other cities in Connecticut in the future.
