Iowa’s Global Insurance Accelerator to Host 17 Firms for InsurTech Week 2019

September 17, 2019

The Global Insurance Accelerator (GIA), a Des Moines, Iowa-based InsurTech accelerator focused on innovation for the insurance industry, says 17 companies will participate in its fifth annual InsurTech Week, being held Oct. 14-18.

Designed to amplify the industry outreach and startup support activities the GIA delivers during the annual 100-day program, InsurTech Week’s networking and education opportunities deliver interactions with insurance company professionals, early-stage investors, program mentors and cohort alumni. This year’s InsurTech Week participants provide solutions for all segments of the industry, including:

  • Life, Annuity & Health: Bell Analytics, Inc., MakuSafe
  • Property & Casualty: Aerialytic, HazardHub, Relay, Talage, inc
  • Multi-Line: Avolanta, BOUND, Breathe Life, DeepVisionAI, EasySend, InDoW Technology Company, KASKO, Optimity, Protosure, Relativity6, UDoTest Inc.

The activities scheduled during InsurTech Week in Des Moines (#InsurTechinDSM) are open to invited guests, professional mentors with the GIA program, and insurer investors in the GIA.

The GIA’s InsurTech Week caters to an audience of more mature startups than the early-stage companies typically a part of the regular, 100-day cohort which runs from January through April each year. Other major differentiators between the regular GIA program and InsurTech Week include the fact that the GIA does not provide any funding element for InsurTech Week participants, and the GIA also takes no equity.
