“Insurance applies to basically any part and stage of our lives”, says Ben Shaw, InsurTech Hub Munich’s (ITHM) Director of Programmes & Strategy, introducing the brand new Innovation Programme. “We strive to institute a broader perspective on relevant fields and solutions for the industry, which means embracing FinTech as well as Health, Process Automation, HR Tech or technologies such as AI”.

Shaw explains: “ITHM can build upon a legacy of four highly successful insurtech accelerator batches. Since the last programme in 2019, our network has grown significantly and become more diverse, which is a major advancement for everyone involved. We’re accommodating to this by selecting 40 startups which offer incredibly broad applicability.”
