Zurich Insurance is in its second year of running the Zurich Innovation Championships - "one of the largest start-up innovation competitions in the insurance industry".
The competition offers start-ups the opportunity to work with Zurich to potentially grow their start-up business on a global scale, to pitch locally and then internationally, their "technologies and innovative business models that tackle challenges around climate, health, automation and other issues".
As per Gold award winner Chisel AI founder Ron Glozman: "If you are an insurtech startup with a strong business case, the Zurich Innovation Championship provides a global stage to showcase your solution and get invaluable feedback from an insurance industry leader.”
