InsureTech Connect 2017 Panel Discussion: Maximizing Profits via Products and Alternative Business Model Innovation

By Heidi A. Lawson

After being in the insurance industry for several decades in a variety of roles, I frequently get asked which insurtechs I think are going to be successful. In sum, I believe the insurtechs best positioned for success are those that are unlocking entirely new markets, thinking past the standard producer model, adding additional revenue streams, and utilizing distribution channels that allow them to efficiently reach more customers. Here are some of the topics our panel discussion focused on at InsureTech Connect 2017.

Their focus is on the consumer, and their aim is to make access to a suite of insurance products easier, faster and more customized to each customer.
