We are excited to host this event in collaboration with Aviva at the Aviva Digital Garage on the Hoxton Square! Amazing.


Startupbootcamp InsurTech is a leading global accelerator that welcomes a series of disruptive startups wanting to deliver innovative products and services for the insurance sector.

We have a global community following us from our location in the heart of London, as well as some incredible partners supporting the program. These include Admiral, Allianz, Ergo/Munich Re, Innovation Group, Momentum, Lloyds Banking Group, PwC, Route66 Ventures, Unipol, Intesa San Paolo, Swiss Re, Metropolitan, MJ Hudson, Scottish Widows, and Liverpool Victoria.

Once again, these partners will provide exclusive challenges and access to APIs for the attendees to work with during the Hackathon. We look forward to seeing you solve digital, distribution, customer acquisition, rating & pricing, product design, complaints, claims, etc. related problems. 



You will be able to form a team at the start of the event, and then work on one of the exclusive challenges or APIs the insurance partners will provide. You will have 48 hours to complete the task.




1. Motor (Admiral & Unipol Sai)

 How can IoT and smart phones be used to not only improve the safety of our roads, but to also gather data about road trips and crashes which can be used during the claims process and to better price insurance premiums?


2.Health (Tryg & PwC)

 We are moving from wearable technology and the Internet of Things to the age of the Internet of Emotions (IoE). We now live in an age where our emotional data can be recognized and stored by multiple sources whilst Artificial Intelligence technology can now read our emotions (facial recognition, voice, walk, text, emojis). How could you combine data from these various sources (wearables, IoT and IoE) to design and deliver improved health insurance products and services?

3. Engagement (Swiss Re & Lloyds Banking Group)


The insurance industry struggles to engage with the under 30 and Millennial generations. How could you transform the market proposition to attract this segment of customers in the areas of investment, protection, pensions, life insurance?

4. Data Sources / Ratings (LV, Intesa Sanpaolo, Momentum, Ergo)                                                                               


How can we use new and different data sources in order to establish alternative risk models and pricing?

5. “Protect – Prevent – Fix” (Aviva)
Aviva’s Strategy for General Insurance can be summarised as “Protect – Prevent – Fix”. We’ve been “protecting” and “fixing” for 300 years and so we are now increasingly focused on preventing bad stuff from happening in the first place.

Data and connected technology are going to be increasingly important enablers to delivering our strategy. Can you build a proposition leveraging connected technology and / or data to prevent bad things from happening to customers?


Wifi is available throughout the building. Sockets, ethernet cables, as well as other cables of all sorts will be provided. We do NOT provide laptops and computers so please bring your own and any associated chargers (don't forget phone chargers too). If you have your own wearables and connected devices do not hesitate to bring those also. Partners to the event are planning to provide APIs and real-data.



  • Best Technical Solution
  • Best Overall Concept
  • Best Design & Usability
  • Best answer to a challenge



Don't worry you won't be hungry, we will ensure you are well fed and that you have sufficient fuel to build a pioneering product. Please let us know of any dietary requirements when you register.
