Earlier in the year, INSTANDA was one of 8 to be selected for the first batch of ‘InsurTech Europe powered by Plug and Play’ program. During the course of the program, we had the opportunity to work on multiple deal flows and to work with many industry leaders and investors. On June 26th, INSTANDA graduated from the programme at Plug and Play Europe InsurTech Expo in Munich. Our Business Growth & Relationship Manager, James Doe, gave a pitch along with other industry-leading speakers.
Moreover, it was great to hear INSTANDA mentioned for the speed and agility to get an insurance product out to market quickly and also for the low cost compared to other legacy systems in the market by Talanx AG in the panel session. Watch the full panel discussion here.
