#London Insurance Disrupters - Crowd and Social Insurance

Hi Everyone,

This is the third 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.

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 andhere to see the photos.
