The programme provides a structured, modular curriculum along with individually tailored mentoring and networking activities. It stimulates interdisciplinary collaboration by connecting startups, corporations, SMEs, investors, universities, research institutes, and governmental as well as non-governmental organisations.
“Solutions for the insurance industry need not only come from startups bearing the label insurtech”, says Ben Shaw, ITHM’s Director Programmes & Strategy. “With H+ we put the spotlight on a field which not only is important to our partners that provide health or life insurance, but that is vital to any single one of us.”
