London - 5 January 2016

Startupbootcamp InsurTech, the leading accelerator focused on Insurance innovation, announces new partnerships with LV= and Swiss Re. Startupbootcamp InsurTech welcomes them on board to provide the expertise, exposure channels, APIs and access to a network of industry professionals that most early-stage insurance startups would not otherwise be able to access.

The chosen startups cover a range of insurance topics including micro insurance, connected home, connected health, white labelling and pension robo-advisors. Startupbootcamp InsurTech will provide funding, mentorship, office space and access to a network of industry partners, investors and venture capital firms.

Sabine VanderLinden, Managing Director at Startupbootcamp InsurTech, said: “We are at a time in our global accelerator program where bringing new partners on board will help us to continue driving the worldwide exposure that startups crave and helps to cement the credibility of the program. After a successful selection process for up and coming insurance startups, the logical next step is to open up the program to an even wider community of startups. The partnerships with LV= and Swiss Re, will enable us to reach this audience and continue expanding the program to the communities around the world where there is a need for an accelerator such as ours.”
