Lloyd’s Lab’s 11th cohort revealed  – Insurance News

A dozen teams that will make up the 11th cohort of the Lloyd’s Lab have been named. 

The Lab received more than 150 applications to join its latest cohort from a range of insurtechs across the world.   

A competitive pitch day was held at Lloyd’s on August 31, where the cohort, from six countries (China, Croatia, England, Norway, Singapore and the US), was chosen across three categories: Asia-Pacific Climate Risk, Cyber and Sustainability, Data & Models and New Products. 

“We are continuing to grow the global reach of the Lloyd’s Lab with the introduction of an Asia-Pacific theme and the international spread of insurtechs joining this year,” Lloyd’s Lab Senior Manager Rosie Deneé said. 

The program starts on September 25, and teams will showcase their progress at Demo Day on December 7. The program, which runs twice a year, offers access to expert mentors and potential partners and investors.   

It gives start-ups, scale-ups and sometimes mature companies 10 weeks to work with market experts to shape their innovation. Concepts can be tested with the support of experts from the world’s largest insurance and reinsurance market.   

Here is the new cohort, by solution theme:
