We are delighted to say that we have another member of the Global InsurTech Alliance. InsurLab in Germany based in Cologne - http://www.insurlab-germany.com/
It's role is to connect the insurance and InsurTech world with each other. It was the first InsurTech-Hub to be included into the de:hub network of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. The idea for InsurLab Germany originally came from the Mayor of the City of Cologne, the Chamber of Commerce of Cologne, the University of Cologne, and the TH Cologne. Meanwhile, it is operated by InsurLab Germany e.V., which was founded by several German insurance companies, universities, and startups.
Sebastian Pitzler, Managing Director of InsurLab Germany “We are very pleased that we are now a part of the Global Alliance and can now, together with our international partners, accompany insurance companies worldwide into the digital age. We are all on the same page. So it is all the better to be able to walk in the same direction together and to support each other in doing so. We are curious to see what the next months will bring.”
We at Instech London are still on the hunt for more members, and hope in the summer to start working on some initiatives with our other Alliance members. For a current list of members see - https://www.insurtechalliance.com/alliancemembers/
Together with innovative national and international founders we want to work in Cologne on topics relevant for the insurance industry ranging from the "internet of things", e-health, life science to "Blockchain", e-payments, big data, and virtual reality, thus shaping the future for the insurance industry.
