For traction, 18 member corporations will work closely with the startups to establish proof of concepts and partnerships. For talent acquisition, startups will be invited to present at the InsurTech Matchmaking Expo on Oct 29.

For fundraising, startups will work with 17 insurance-focused corporate VCs, traditional VCs and angel investors. The program will run for a total of six weeks, ending on November 12.
