The entrepreneurs arrived in Des Moines over the weekend, and starting today have an almost unprecedented opportunity to learn about the insurance business first hand. “This initiative is about bringing innovation to the insurance industry,” said Jeff Russell, CEO of Delta Dental of Iowa. “I’m so excited to see this effort come to life. Multiple insurance companies are working together on this, which is a first among accelerators across the country. We’re thrilled that our first class includes entrepreneurs from Germany and Brazil.” The inaugural Global Insurance Accelerator class includes the following companies: Tyche – San Jose, CA Tyche is using legal, financial, and insurance data to build predictive models of legal risk.

In addition to seed funding, the accelerator offers mentoring and C-level introductions for activities such as product development, marketing and sales, scaling technology, raising capital, legal matters and more,” Global Insurance Accelerator Managing Director Brian Hemesath said. “The mentors represent a ‘Who’s Who’ of senior executives in the insurance industry and entrepreneurs already successfully working in the industry.” The concentration of insurance companies in the Greater Des Moines area, combined with the city’s hosting of the annual Global Insurance Symposium , May 26-28, 2015, make it a natural location for the accelerator. The Symposium brings together hundreds of international insurance industry leaders to address areas of mutual concern. Technology is always at or near the top of the list. “It’s win-win for everyone. Startups participating in the inaugural class of the Global Insurance Accelerator will demonstrate their products at the 2nd annual Global Insurance Symposium – ready customers,” Hemesath adds.
