We believe that those working alongside our industry are full of great ideas to modernise our industry and deliver clear customer benefits. Through the Big Ideas competition, we will unlock these ideas, help bring them to market and build businesses together with first time and/or experienced entrepreneurs.
Anything with relevance to Life or Health insurance, or Retirement markets. These could be new products or services, new uses of technology or anything related that helps solve an existing problem. These ideas can be at any stage of development.
Anyone that is not directly working inside an insurance or reinsurance company. Maybe you work closely to the industry and have spotted a great opportunity to do something better. Or perhaps you're an academic or medical practitioner whose skills could be applied in a new field. Or, maybe you have a particular piece of technology (existing or still-to-be-created) that could unlock potential in relevant markets.
The deadline for entries is Thursday 21 March 2019
