Insurtech Journeys

  • Speakers:Timothy Attia, Slice Labs
    Rusty Sproat, FIGO Pet Insurance
This Session will be held on April 06th, 2020 9:00 AM

It’s been a wild five-year ride for these two innovative insurtech companies –both of which were launched in 2015! Slice Labs, created as a startup by Tim Attia, was the first on-demand insurance cloud platform provider, filling the gaps and reducing the risks facing the growing gig workforce. And FIGO Pet Insurance, helmed by Rusty Sproat (and his loyal Boston terrier Buster), is the first web-based pet insurance company, delivering an innovative approach to pet insurance and technology.

In this informal discussion, Tim and Rusty will look back on the ups and downs of their five-year journey from scrappy start-ups to well-established businesses – and speculate about where the insurtech field is headed over the next five years.

Preparing for Emerging Technologies

  • Speakers:Jennifer Overhulse, St. Nick Media Services
This Session will be held on April 06th, 2020 9:45 AM

Risk mitigation is “where it’s at” in the insurance industry, and that’s a big part of the reason insurance companies are so hesitant to experiment with emerging technologies. However, even in a risk averse world, there are ways to take advantage of the exciting things happening in today’s InsurTech movement. From conversational artificial intelligence (AI) and digital payments to APIs and a new approach to core administration, this session will hit all the hot buttons for insurance company professionals struggling to prioritize the right investments, enterprise projects, and PoCs. Attend this session for a different take on how to talk your board off the business end of the blockchain/buzzword ledge and lead your company into a confident future.

The Insurance Talent Crisis: Can Insurtech Help?

  • Speakers:Ron Glozman, Chisel
This Session will be held on April 06th, 2020 10:45 AM

As insurance companies seek to replace their aging workforce, new thinking and new approaches will be needed in order to lure the interest of the next-generation worker. Individuals born between the mid-1990s and early 2000s, dubbed Generation Z, have never known a non-digital world. They are the first generation of true digital natives. As true digital natives, they are no stranger to the power of the internet and have an “always-on” mentality. They have fully embraced the availability of many on-demand services like Netflix, Uber, Airbnb, Amazon, etc. and think nothing of ordering goods and services online. Their use of social platforms to communicate with peers, employers, colleagues, family, and friends is prolific.

This presentation will cover:
• Recruiting strategies for attracting the next generation of insurance workers
• Practical and proven approaches
• How AI and other emerging technologies can help attract new talent to the insurance industry
