16 Startups become part of the InsurLab Germany Accelerator Program 2019
On 10 April 2019 the InsurLab Germany Accelerator Selection Day 2019 took place in Cologne. During this day we gave 25 startups the opportunity to introduce themselves to our members on the premises of SCOR Reinsurance. After giving five startups the opportunity to participate in our program in 2018, this year 15 startups should make it into our six-month accelerator program. Because of the fact that the decisions were already difficult - since all the startups were convincing - 16 companies were finally admitted to our programme this year.
The InsurTech startups and the startups with a strong link to the insurance industry could apply in two categories: "Start" and "Growth". With this in mind, ten companies in the "Start" category and 15 companies in the "Growth" category were invited to our Selection Day. Here, our member companies and a jury of experts were able to decide which startups would be finally admitted to the Accelerator.
This is what awaits our selected startups
Younger startups receive a cash bonus and are now comprehensively supported by us in the implementation of their first pilot projects. The more mature startups will benefit from our extensive network of potential customers to scale their business ideas. Startups in both categories receive individual mentors as well as several specialist mentors who are always available to advise on the further development of business models and the implementation of projects with their expertise. In addition, the 16 startups expect numerous workshops, pitch opportunities at events and workplaces on our InsurLab campus. Of course, all this is free of charge.
