Aksigorta Startup Challenge provided a chance to meet with very bright and talented young entrepreneurs, endeavoring to develop their start-up-projects. Our topics were digital health and insurtech along with digital technologies. We were very surprised and pleased with the outcome, had hard time to pick up the finalists with innovative and disruptive insurtech ideas and applications. The demo day was very productive as well. The startups made their presentations; exchanging their fresh, out-of-the box ideas with audiences, had the chance to network and meet with the insurance professionals from Aksigorta. We are still in contact with them for possible partnership models and following their progress, thanks to our business partner Hackquarters that makes this happen.
