MUNICH, April 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Insurtech Europe, Plug and Play's Insurtech platform based in Munich, Germany, announced today the 18 startups have been selected for its second batch.
The "Insurtech Europe powered by Plug and Play" program aims to facilitate pilots, POCs, and business development opportunities for the participating startups and our corporate partners Allianz, Munich Re, Versicherungskammer Bayern, Talanx, Irish Life, Willis Towers Watson, Swiss Re, and Generali Germany.
"Insurtech Europe has served to bring startups, corporations, and investors together. It has also acted as a catalyst to allow for these players to explore potential synergy," says Ali Safavi, Global Head of Plug and Play Insurtech.
"The Plug and Play ecosystem holds a unique value for regional insurers, giving us [Versicherungskammer Bayern] access to the international innovation space. It is exciting to explore business models and technologies that can solve the challenges that our colleagues are facing. On top of that, we get to bring new ideas into our organization, which have not been on the radar before," says Johannes Wagner, Leiter Startup Cooperation at Versicherungskammer Bayern.
Plug and Play does not take equity as a prerequisite to joining the program and there is no cost for the selected startups to participate. Plug and Play invests separately from the activities of the program. The startups will remain part of the ecosystem even after graduation on July 9th, 2019, at program's EXPO.
