Zurich, 23rd of March 2021
House of InsurTech Switzerland (HITS), F10 and Kickstart have joined forces and are thrilled to announce the launch of the InsurTech Map on March 23rd, 2021. The InsurTech Map is enabling a virtual and interactive place to highlight startup entries and relevant innovative solutions across the insurance value chain. With startups from all over Germany, Switzerland and Austria, the map is a guide for corporates and investors to find innovative startups to collaborate with.
“Due to the current lack of reliable data and information on incorporated startups in the InsurTech space, there was a need to create a dynamic and dedicated space to provide visibility for these innovative companies,” said Ruth Armalé, Head of Open Innovation at HITS. “The creation of this map has been made possible through the joint collaboration of valuable partners Swisscom,
“At Kickstart we help scaleups connect and collaborate within innovation ecosystems. The interactive Insurtech map co-created with our alumnus Clara (formerly Fintechdb) and partners including HITS and F10 enables exactly that, and will be continually updated to fast track outreach for startups regionally and globally.” Katka Letzing, Co-Founder & CEO, Kickstart.
“The InsurTech Map is closely aligned with F10s mission to empower collaboration in the ecosystem to shape the future of banking & insurance. We are excited to launch this dynamic and growing platform providing much needed visibility in the InsurTech space together with HITS and Kickstart.” Andreas Iten, F10 Co-Founder.
During the last months, the three initiators worked closely together with partners to identify and validate the startups included in this first release of the InsurTech Map. In order to reflect the fast-changing ecosystem, the map will keep growing with new startups added in quarterly intervals not just in DACH, but eventually all of Europe.
We would like to grow the insurtech ecosystem even further, so if you would like to have sponsorship opportunities, please contact us and become part of the initiative.
If your startup is not included in the list, please get in touch and submit your startup directly to be included in the next release.
