Scale | InsurTech

10 Scale-ups, 40+ Corporates, 30+ industry experts

The Programme

Insurance is an old business with equally old values, ways of working and systems. This industry, despite being worth trillions, is extremely slow to innovate and keep up with new technological trends.

There is a new force, InsurTech, hitting the insurance market which is driving innovation and disruption. The InsurTech companies are smaller, more agile and more innovative than the current incumbents and their solutions will soon become business as usual. There are a number of spaces that the InsurTech companies are playing in including, but not limited to, Artificial Intelligence, Machine learning, Robotic Process Automation amongst others.

PwC is launching its second Scale | InsurTech programme in May 2019 located in London. This 10 week programme will support a number of B2B Scale-ups to expand and grow in the InsurTech market.

Through its three core components, we provide the tools enabling you to effectively and efficiently scale your business. Our curated events give founders the opportunity to meet and pitch to the PwC extended network of industry decision-makers, expanding your commercial opportunities. Group masterclasses provide valuable insights through a combination of PwC and industry experts, as well as learning from shared peer experiences. Finally, individual bespoke counsel including coaching and business support leaves your entire business fit to scale.
