That was the GIR2018!

In March 2018, 200 international participants met in Frankfurt for the first Global InsurTech Roadshow that has been created in cooperation with Goethe Business School (GBS) and InsurTech Asia! 24 InsurTech startups from around the world - from New Zealand, to Los Angeles, and Moscow - 30 insurers, founders and CEO’s of the most influencing German InsurTechs, the ambassador of the Republic of Singapore as well as numerous experts, entrepreneurs, and journalists made this event a great success.

Winner of the pitch sessions of 24 startups - presented by Dr. Moritz Finkelnburg, GBS Academic Director Insurance and Robin Kiera, one of the international top influencers – was the Hamburg-based InsurTech Nect. The startup was able to convince the high-profile jury with its business model: A central data portal for customers with the opportunity to manage data on one single point of access (“single identity”). Nect was represented by Benny Bennet and Carlo Ulbrich, who were awarded with the Goethe InsurTech Award, winning a prize money of 10 Litecoins.

Goethe University’s Campus Westend offered the perfect conditions for a successful conference, at the same time providing a professional, academic and informal framework with ideal networking opportunities. Numerous sponsorships formed the base of the event and various media corporations ensured comprehensive media coverage.

The event was under the patronage of the Ministry of Economics, Energy, Transport and Regional Development, State of Hessen.

We’re looking forward to seeing you (again) at GIR2019 on March 19-20, 2019!
