Session Description

A combination of higher industry costs and lower returns on investments combined with turbulent markets and the expense of gathering assets has spawned a growth in innovative InsurTech startups, that are both, enabling and disrupting the Insurance sector, even as investors are becoming more selective about the ideas they back.  This panel will explore what’s going on in the InsurTech Funding space, the stage of development of the InsurTech wave, and the funding environment for insurance startups both in the U.S. and abroad.
