Nassau Re Imagine-s insurtech accelerator in US
Nassau Re is launching Nassau Re/Imagine, an insurtech incubator based in the company’s Boat Building headquarters in Hartford, Connecticut.
Nassau Re/Imagine will support selected start-ups focused in the life insurance, annuity and reinsurance industries and will provide complimentary office space and business development services.
“Through Nassau Re/Imagine, our goal is to help accelerate Hartford’s transformation as a centre for insurtech innovation by fostering new companies that will continue to attract a new generation of talent to the city and state,” says Phil Gass, chief executive officer of Nassau Re.
Gass adds: “Further, Nassau Re will provide a free, convenient and supportive environment for founders to develop strong business relationships with Nassau Re and other carriers in the area.”
Nassau Re developed the incubator programme in cooperation with the City of Hartford and Connecticut Innovations.
Nassau Re will contribute up to 48,000 square feet over the next three years to support Nassau Re/Imagine. In addition, the start-ups will receive legal, human resources, and business development support.
Nassau Re/Imagine is currently accepting applications for the programme, led by Paul Tyler, chief marketing officer for Nassau Re. You can get more information at the firm’s site here.
