#London Insurance Disrupters - The Quantified Self

Hi Everyone,

This is the second of our six month series of monthly morning creative workshops that examine disruptive technologies with the potential to transform the Insurance Industry.

The workshop is not about the technical aspects of the Disruptive Technology but a qualitative creative discussion about the existing Insurance value chain, how the technology might disrupt it and how that can be turned into an opportunity.

We would like to bring together Insurance Business Professionals and Technologists with Entrepreneurs and FinTech Experts to identify the opportunities in this very exciting and undersubscribed space. The series culminates in a full weekend hackathon in July where we’ll try to create some new technology using the learning from the previous sessions.

The content from this session will be captured and circulated to the group as slides, documents and drawings.

Month 1 - February 26th - Analytics & Big Data

Month 2 - March 26th - The Quantified Self

Month 3 - April 30th - Mobile

Month 4 - May 28th - Social Media

Month 5 - June 25th - Crowd

Month 6 - July 26th & 27th - Hackathon and competition (full weekend)

We'll be videoing the session as usual for those of you who are unable to attend. You may click here to watch the videos from our previous seminars and here to see the photos.

    I agree, the event was made by a very high caliber mix of people. It was so good in fact that I believe it warrants a follow up centered around what the insurance industry people felt the most valuable insights were and what startups should be focusing on to provide information they'd be willing to pay for.
