“Every year, we review 5,000 startups, invest in over 160, and run industry-specific accelerator programs to help you grow as fast as possible. Within the programs, we connect our 150 corporate partners to the startups that are directly impacting their space. These introductions help both parties thrive together through investments, pilots, and acquisitions. By seeing which startups work with our partners well, we recognise the companies worth investing in alongside our 180 leading Silicon Valley VC partners. Match that with more than 365 networking events per year, office space on demand, and corporate introductions, we have created the ultimate startup ecosystem.”

Earlier in the year, INSTANDA was selected by a global innovation platform Plug and Play for their InsurTech programme. We were one of 175 companies chosen from 8,500 startups to match their nine industry-specific programmes.
The InsurTech programme ran for 12 weeks from March and included mentorship, business development, investment pitches, extensive networking, demo days and potential for pilot projects with some of the world’s leading insurance companies.
Last week, INSTANDA graduated from the programme at Plug and Play’s Summer Summit in Sunnyvale, California on 6-8th June. Our CEO, Tim Hardcastle, gave a pitch along with other industry leading speakers, and hundreds of startups from other industries including; Brand & Retail, Fintech, Food & Beverage, Health & Wellness, Internet of Things, Mobility, New Materials & Packaging, and Travel & Hospitality.
