Insurtech & Innovation Webinar Series – How Insurers of All Sizes Can Take Advantage of Insurtech
Apr 4, 2018 | 2:00 pm EDT

Most insurtechs offer opportunities – chances for insurers to partner with them, license technology, or simply learn from them – rather than threats. Most insurers will face disruption from startups only if their competitors choose to embrace a technology that they themselves do not. But how can insurers that don’t have the budget for venture funds or innovation labs take advantage of these new innovations, both internal and external to the insurance industry? No company can leverage every innovation in an effective way. The goal is to understand the marketplace and make decisions that will have the most impact on your lines of business.

Recognizing that change is hard and innovating within an industry that is naturally risk adverse is even harder, this session will give you fresh perspective on how you can bring innovative thinking into your own company’s philosophy while sharing some do’s and a few don’ts from Grange’s own experience.
