Zurich Innovation Championship

We support Zurich Italy in scouting the most innovative solutions in the insurance field. 

Zurich Innovation Championship is a worldwide challenge for startups that meet the changing needs of customers and can help the insurance industry to face the future in an efficient and sustainable way.

We are supporting Zurich Italy in identifying the solutions that best respond to these challenges. We will assist interested and in-target startups in learning about the initiative and determine relevant use cases for potential collaboration.

The challenges

  • Insurance Reimagined: creating personalised experiences, services, and products based on customers' needs to trailblaze a redefinition of what it means to protect customers against risks;
  • Simplicity: simplifying interaction with customers, intermediaries, and partners and improving employee experience;
  • Prevention & Mitigation​: ​helping customers better understand, prevent, and mitigate risks​;
  • Sustainability:​ tackling global challenges related to climate change and decarbonisation, digital transparency, wellbeing, and evolving work patterns.

Selected startups will participate in an acceleration program where they will work alongside Zurich, with the chance to take their product or service to market. They will also benefit from mentoring sessions, meetings with investors, and funding of up to $100,000.
