Khube hosts event for entrepreneurs and representatives from Luxembourg’s insurance sector. “This event takes a different format than usual,” said Emilie Prodent, a Khube organiser. “Each startup representative spends three minutes with each insurance company.” The nine insurance companies present took place around tables across the restaurant and heard from startups of all kinds.
“Luxembourg companies are making the switch to digital,” Emilie continued. “This event is a way for entrepreneurs to show off their products, which range from solutions in client management, regulations, and employee management. It’s just one part of the process to digitalization.“
“The speed dating event gives us the opportunity to spread our wings and share ideas.”
Among the startups present were Investify and textAnglr. “Our product isn’t unique to the insurance sector,” said Jacob Hetzel of Investify, “but the speed dating event gives us the opportunity to spread our wings and share ideas.”
Investment solutions weren’t the only category present. Steve Bottelbergs of textAnglr explained that “text analysis is something that can revolutionize how Insurance companies treat customer feedback.”
Only time will tell what partnerships come out of this event as well as future speed dates.
