Set to take place October 22-26, InsurTech Week 2018 will bring 16 startups to Des Moines, providing them with networking and education opportunities. The 16 companies participating in this year’s InsurTech week are:

Each of the 16 companies will present their products to the public on Oct. 24, and will have the opportunity to schedule sessions with visitors throughout the week.

“InsurTech Week is an additional opportunity for the GIA to offer growing companies a chance to build a stronger network of startup peers and engage with our GIA investors and mentors while showcasing innovative solutions to the insurance community,” said Brian Hemesath, managing director for the GIA in  press release.

InsurTech Week is intended for startups at a later stage than the early-stage companies that typically participate in the GIA’s annual cohort program, a 100-day cohort that runs from January through April each year. Companies who apply and are selected to participate in InsurTech Week have often already completed pilots and proof-of-concept projects with insurers, have successfully gained traction with customers or have secured seed funding.
