A dozen European start-ups will be defending their projects during Pitch Day

12 start-ups from a variety of countries have already confirmed that they will be presenting their projects at the InsurtechNow Pitch Day, taking place on June 2 in Madrid, Spain.

The Insurtech firms that have registered and been selected come from a variety of European countries such as Austria, Croatia, France and UK as well as Spain. They will give their presentations on 2 June, explaining the keys to their entrepreneurial projects in the field of insurance.

Innovation is also taking place in Spain. The Spanish system for promoting entrepreneurship seems to be effective as it is sparking today's lively technological transformation. But steps are still needed to speed up growth to reach the same rate as in Europe. For this reason, there will be a large number of Spanish Insurtech firms, including Sentimer, Willowi, Legaliboo, Drivies, Wenalyze, Sharenjoy, Signaturit, Wiquot and Numen, the aim being to promote creative businesses and to boost investment and funding in this area within Spain.

Spain is not only a very varied country but also serves as an excellent point of entry into Latin America, which could benefit from the strong European ecosystem of start-ups, accelerators and incubators. So other European countries will also be represented during Pitch Day, such as AMODO (Croatia), Shift Technology (France), Netinsurer (Austria) and SweatCoin (United Kingdom).

Some companies, such as Sharenjoy or Drivies, have already announced their projects on InsurTechNOW, the first radio competition in Spain for start-ups in the insurance sector, defending their projects in the hope of winning the prize: free advertising valued at 8,000 euros.

InsurtechNow Pitch Day takes place at the Global Summit for Insurance Innovation 2017, organised by INESE and supported by XPRIMM Publications as Media Partner. At the last Global Summit for Insurance Innovation in 2016, 120 insurance executives gathered in a single day, and 20 speakers gave first-class presentations to more than 65 companies from 15 different countries.
