Zurich has launched the Innovation World Championship to provide a platform for inspiring innovators to showcase transformative technologies in their key business areas of mobility, smart homes and buildings, digital health and financial planning.   They're seeking innovative customer-focused products or services from the brightest and best startups and entrepreneurs in the insurtech space. Zurich has established collaborations with organizations such Startupbootcamp, Plug and Play, and SOSA that have extensive network within startup communities all around the world.

There are three levels of competition: country, regional and global. At each phase, participants will be asked to provide increasing amounts of detail on their proposed pilot execution plans.  Three winners will be selected: gold, silver and bronze. Winners will be chosen by juries of Zurich subject matter experts, innovation leaders, and senior business executives. In the regional and global rounds, some external experts may also be invited to join the juries.  The three winners of the Global round will partner with Zurich to bring their pilot plans to life in their chosen market or markets. The prize package comprises: resources to implement pilot program, exposure through press release and/or media channels, and recognition from the Zurich Group Leadership Team.

Submissions are being accepted through September 30, 2018.
