Hartford, CT (July 17, 2019) – Hartford InsurTech Hub, powered by Startupbootcamp, has opened applications for the third year of its accelerator program. Insurance Technology (InsurTech) startups that have shown strong traction and are looking to connect with several of the biggest insurance companies in the U.S. are encouraged to apply. Applications will close on October 4th.
Having gone through Hartford InsurTech Hub’s Accelerator program, several of the startups in 2018 and 2019 cohorts have begun promising partnerships with large insurance companies, thus demonstrating the increasing InsurTech-Incumbent collaboration trend.
Some of the success stories include:
- Aureus Analytics, a customer intelligence and experience company, has secured pilots with several insurers including several of program partners;

For the duration of the three-month accelerator program, the 10 selected startups will relocate to Hartford, Connecticut, a world leading insurance city located on the doorstep of New York and Boston, and become an integral part of the City’s growing innovation and InsurTech ecosystem.
Startups will have the opportunity to rapidly scale, through impactful collaboration with Startupbootcamp’s impressive network of insurance companies, investors, and industry expert mentors. The program enables startups to achieve in three months what it would take them in 12 to 18 months to accomplish on their own.
