We are pleased to have collaborated with George Kessleman of InsurTechAsia to bring you the first Singapore InsurTech Directory. You can download the entire Directory for free below. The idea of the InsurTech Directory came about when we realised there was a lack of easily accessible information about InsurTech in Asia. The directory aims to provide enough information for startups, corporates and also investors to understand more about InsurTech, hence fostering information transparency and reducing barriers to collaboration.
WHAT IS IT?
The directory is a snapshot of the Insurance-Tech (InsurTech) ecosystem in Singapore. For Startups it includes pain-points they are focusing on and how they are solving those, how they are looking to collaborate with corporates and some basic details about themselves. For Insurers, Re-Insurers, Investors the info also includes the references of existing startup relationships and what areas are they particularly focused on.
WHY DID WE DECIDE TO CREATE IT?
The idea for a country InsurTech directory came about when we’ve realized that the same questions kept on coming up in pretty much every single meeting. Meeting an insurer usually started with the question “WHATS THE LATEST STARTUP IN AN <AREA OF INSURTECH>?”. And meeting a startup usually started with “WHICH INSURER SHOULD WE BE TALKING TO ABOUT OUR SOLUTION?”. This deja vu question led us to believe that lack of public information was potentially hindering collaboration opportunities. Regular networking meetups and coffees helped but weren’t enough to help everyone. Hence, the directory is our attempt at promoting information transparency and further reducing hurdles to collaboration.
We hope you enjoy the guide and please share your feedback to help us make this a reliable and up-to date source of InsurTech information. It’s a small start but with your helpe and support we will improve it and hopefully extend to other countries.
