Global InsurTech Roadshow

In cooperation with InsurTech Asia, Goethe Business School organizes a two-day Global InsurTech Roadshow (GIR) on March 13-14, 2018 at Goethe University Frankfurt.

The roadshow combines pitch-sessions and discussion rounds with 25 international early-stage InsurTechs, presented by highly prestigious German InsurTech experts such as Julian Teicke (Wefox), Christopher Oster (Clark), and George Kesselman (InsurTech Asia).

During their pitches, they compete for the Goethe InsurTech Award, granted by the City of Frankfurt am Main, which will be awarded at the Networking Dinner on day 1.

On day 2, the expert panels during the workshop sessions will focus on the latest digital trends and common learnings from Amazon, Blockchain or Cyber to the latest platform-solutions.
