Zurich has launched the second edition of its global ‘Zurich Innovation Championship', offering startups from around the world the opportunity to work with the global insurer to grow their business.
In its second year, the global contest is looking for established startups with "commercially viable technologies and innovative business models", the company said in a statement. The startups could be from any sector, but those that tackle challenges around climate, health, automation and other issues expected to put a strain on the next generation are encouraged.
The championship was announced by Giuliani at InsurTech Connect in Las Vegas. Applications are open until Dec. 17, 2019. Each of Zurich's participating country businesses will select one startup and develop a use case together over a five-month period. The field will then be narrowed to eight for the final round in August 2020. Three winners will have the chance to work with Zurich on a local pilot with the goal to scale it globally.
NRGY NINJA one of the most ambitious contestant of this championship.
