|Recurring Event (See all)
An event every month that begins at 5:30pm on day First of the month, repeating until October 4, 2018
Following the success of our first Insurance only focused event last year, the recently formed Insurance Working Group (IWG) is hosting a monthly meetup style event as an aside from other projects. The goal is to help the InsurTech sector collaborate, innovate and create, both local and international opportunity.
Our inaugural event will discuss Insurance: where we have been and where are we going? They say history never repeats, but is InsurTech turning back the clock for insurance and what does that mean for the future? Jason Roberts in his capacity as Lead co-ordinator for the IWG will provide an Insurtech update and invite important regulatory updates from FMA/MBIE. Following this Independent Development Solution’s Barry Read will provide a quick history lesson and review Insurance, the journey so far. Vallum Insure’s Kai Dwyer will share his views on how the industry has evolved, highlight pain points and share his story of establishing an InsurTech start-up.
Our meetups are designed to be informative and invite debate. This new initiative is scheduled for nine meetups this year. Each meeting will receive market and IWG activity updates and will share global insights and opportunity from the recently formed Global InsurTech Alliance (GITA) which currently includes NZ, Australia, ASIA, Japan, UK and member cities or countries in North America and Europe.
The meetup format is designed to foster diversity, create networking opportunities, be inclusive and invites audience participation to actively create value. No matter where you or your company are in the fast changing InsurTech landscape – come join us!
