In 2016, insurance technology startups raised $1.7B across more than 170 deals. Meanwhile, a plethora of (re)insurers have kickstarted venture units, investing in more than 100 deals last year.
While funding to the category has exploded, a host of nascent insurance startups are just now getting off the ground and launching to consumers and businesses. And a host of strategic partnerships between startups and (re)insurers are just now taking shape. So where are we headed in 2017?
In this webinar, we’ll be covering:
- New partnership initiatives by (re)insurers
- Where investments are trending in 2017
- How technology is developing in the insurance industry in different parts of the world
