The Neosurance Team enthusiastically received the news of being selected by Plug and Play, the most important startup accelerator worldwide, for their program in the Silicon Valley Tech Center.
Neosurance, together with other 25 selected startups, will be taking part in a three-month intensive acceleration program meant to give a significant boost to their business through an intensive interaction with corporate partners and VC’s. Official corporate partners include Aviva, Allianz, Markel, Farmers Insurance, Munich Re, Swiss Re, Nationwide, The Hartford, Talanx, Travelers, Zurich, HDI, USAA, AON and many others. Neosurance was founded just one year ago by Andrea Silvello – CEO & Co-founder of Digital Tech with over 15 years of experience in strategic business consulting, and Dario Melpignano – Co-founder of Neosperience, the leading digital customer experience platform. Recently, the startup has gained a pre-seed investment from Pietro Menghi the new CEO of the company, and from Matteo Carbone – Founder and Director of the Connected Insurance Observatory – who also took up the role of Senior Advisor.
The most awaited moment of the startup camp will be the Expo Demo Day at the beginning of June when Neosurance and the other participants will pitch in front of the corporate partners and the venture capital community, having by then reached a stage at which their business models will be well defined and ready to fly.
“It is exhilarating to have been chosen out of 1000 initial applicants from all over the world. This is a great success for Neosurance as Plug and Play Tech Center is a gateway to the Valley and to the worldwide InsurTech ecosystem,” says Pietro Menghi, CEO of Neosurance. “We will have access to a network of over 180 VCs and to the great know-how made available by Plug and Play,” Menghi adds.
“We are proud of our purpose of protecting people when and where it matters most, an impactful proposition with a strong social purpose both for developed and emerging markets. Our passionate ambition of enabling contextual, personalized micro-covers offered through push notifications directly on our smartphones is, in fact, receiving a great deal of attention, even at this early stage of our journey,” Menghi comments.
In the age of mobility and mobile, where virtual and physical converge in one single experience, smartphones become an extension of the person allowing for a strong connection to be established between the very personal world of the individual and the wider world, enabling new emotional and impulse buying behaviors for insurance protections.
Menghi enthusiastically concludes, “Time to book the next flight to San Francisco and get together with Ali Safavi and his InsurTech Team!”
