Office Hours in Cape Town

August 28, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm


On the 28th of August, The InsurTech Accelerator, part of Hartford InsurTech Hub powered by Startupbootcamp welcomes you to Cape Town for Office Hours as part of our international tour to find the best rising insurtech companies.

The event is free of charge and aims to connect interesting startups with our ecosystem to receive feedback and mentorship from Startupbootcamp leadership and local industry mentors. Our goal is to learn more about the most promising Insurtech startups in the marketplace for our program while providing valuable mentoring.

Please be aware that only 10 teams from all registrations will be chosen for the event.

The feedback sessions will answer any questions the startups may have, including: how to fundraise? What is the value of an acceleration program? How strong is my business model? How to engage in projects with the program partners? You will also learn more about our Hartford-based program.

The event is also a great opportunity to receive an invitation to our Selection Days, and potentially become one of the ten teams to enter our 2019 programs.

Mentorship is one of the best ways to engage with innovative new insurtech startups. Mentors provide startups with real, life-learned advice, and inspire startups to look at problems and challenges from a different perspective. If you are one of Hartford Insurtech Hub’s or Startupbootcamp InsurTech’s experts, we encourage you to attend this Office Hours to speak to startups one-on-one and provide valuable mentorship.


Who should apply?

If you are a Africa-based startup or can easily reach Cape Town to meet our team, we encourage you to apply. We are looking for startups that improve upon these lines: Personal, Comercial & Speciality lines, as well as Life, Annuities and Retirement.

The InsurTech Accelerator, part of Hartford InsurTech Hub powered by Startupbootcamp’s Office Hours sessions are open for all startups looking for targeted advice from leading industry experts.
