MUNICH, Oct. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Insurtech Europe, Plug and Play's Insurtech platform based in Munich, Germany, announced the 14 startups that have been selected for its third batch.
The winter program aims to facilitate opportunities for pilots, POCs, and new relationships between the selected batch startups and Plug and Play's global ecosystem with a special focus on the corporate partners Munich Re, Generali, Versicherungskammer Bayern, Talanx, Irish Life, Willis Towers Watson, Swiss Re, Covea and the most recently, Baloise.
"Plug and Play is offering us the chance to connect with new partners that are outside our core insurance business," says Sibylle Fischer, Manager of Strategic Venturing & Startup Scouting at Baloise. "We are delighted about our new partnership, which will help us to expand our ecosystem network."
"We are truly honored to work with so many major European Insurance players, and believe we offer our batch startups an incredibly unique opportunity. We look forward to seeing what we can accomplish on this program with the energy levels so high," says Robert Pechholz, Munich Lead and Corporate Partnerships Manager for Insurtech Europe at Plug and Play.
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 and is ranked as one of Silicon Valley's most active early stage investors. The startups will remain part of the ecosystem even after the program's EXPO Day on February 5th.
