Join FinTech Global and Lloyd’s Lab for an innovation forum exploring the future of InsurTech, on March 4th following on from the Global InsurTech Summit (March 3rd). Hear from Lloyd’s innovation lab accelerator programme on their latest developments, strategies and partnerships in InsurTech.

Innovative start-ups join the Lab for ten-week programme, where they are given the unique opportunity to work with Lloyd’s market experts and given access to a state of the art coworking space, potential funding and the chance to develop their ideas alongside their target audience.
