About Us

The Global Insurance Accelerator (GIA) is a mentor-driven accelerator designed to foster innovation in the insurance industry through startups targeting the global insurance markets. The GIA is funded and supported by several leaders in the Central Iowa insurance industry. The accelerator will host a class of six companies beginning in February 2015 for a period of 100 days, with the demo-day equivalent occurring during the Global Insurance Symposium in Des Moines, IA.

  • The structure of the GIA is unique as several insurance companies have partnered to create the accelerator.
  • Participants will benefit from the collaboration of mentors from numerous, well-respected insurance carriers.
  • The industry seeks to solve key issues in non-competitive areas such as: fraud, security, risk management, reporting, regulation, device monitoring, actuarial, documentation management and quoting.
  • The GIA is a proud member of the Global Accelerator Network.
