Accelerating Insurance Innovation

Iowa has become an innovation hub for insurance technology (insurtech) that could revolutionize the industry. Established in 2015, Iowa’s Global Insurance Accelerator (GIA) is the world’s first business accelerator focused on insurtech. GIA is a mentor-driven program designed to foster innovation in the insurance industry by supporting startups targeting the global insurance industry. Since established, the GIA has attracted participation from burgeoning companies from all across the U.S., as well as Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Serbia, Brazil and Australia.

During GIA’s 100-day program, startups work with insurance company mentors from a range of sponsors to move products to the demonstration stage, which takes place during the annual Global Insurance Symposium held in Des Moines. The Global Insurance Symposium attracts more than 600 insurance regulators, actuaries and industry leaders from around the world.
