InsureTech Hackathon

 

 

Fintegrate Zone 2018 just got bigger with the ICICI Lombard InsureTech Hackathon!

 

This is a 2-phase challenge, wherein the first phase is to make a brief pitch of your idea in the defined problem areas. Pitch should describe the solution approach, technologies to be used, software/hardware requirements, tentative costs (assuming sufficient scale).

 

ICICI Lombard has identified distinct challenges in the insurance industry, across diverse non-traditional verticals, which makes this an interesting challenge for participants to explore.
