RIMS Insurtech Competition to Award Start-Ups for Innovative, Efficiency-Enhancing Solutions
With the rise of new, innovative Insurtech solutions that are creating opportunities for risk professionals to optimize their efforts, RIMS, the risk management society®, has invited up-and-coming start-up companies to compete in the inaugural “RIMS Tech, the Insurtech Competition” at RIMS 2019 Annual Conference & Exhibition in Boston.
Held in the Start-up Stadium – a section of the RIMS Marketplace dedicated to emerging start-up exhibitors – competitors will have the chance to demonstrate their technologies in a “Shark Tank”-styled showdown. The presentations will be judged by an expert panel of risk professionals hosted by Audrey Rampinelli, CEO and co-founder of OnRamp Risk LLC. The winner will be announced at RIMS Conference Finale on May 1st.
“Technology is transforming and strengthening risk management practices around the world,” said RIMS President Gloria Brosius, RIMS-CRMP. “From thought-leading experts, to students and everyone in between, RIMS Annual Conference & Exhibition brings the world’s risk management community together. RIMS is proud to welcome and learn from this elite group of Insurtech companies.”
“Artificial intelligence, internet of things, mobile applications and other Insurtech technologies are allowing organizations to collect and analyze better data, identify trends and root causes and develop more efficient processes,” said Ms. Rampinelli. “In a competitive market, the RIMS Tech competition provides a platform for these start-up companies, as well as a valuable opportunity for risk professionals to familiarize themselves with potentially game-changing solutions.”
