Toronto, Ontario (April 1, 2019) – MSA Research Inc. has announced an impressive speaker lineup for its highly successful InsurTech North conference. Now in its second year, InsurTech North takes place May 23-24, 2019 at the Beanfield Centre in Toronto.

Developed in partnership with an esteemed Advisory Committee, InsurTech North is a forum for digital leaders, entrepreneurs and venture capitalists in the property and casualty (P&C) and life/health insurance space.

There are four distinct features of the InsurTech North 2019 conference that are integral to this year’s stellar agenda: Expert panel discussions, a series of educational Workshops, a two-day Marketplace powered by the Brella networking App, and a highly anticipated Wolf Pack startup pitch competition.

“This world-class conference is once again attracting outstanding interest and participation from across the insurtech ecosystem”, said Guy Fraker, Chief Innovation Officer, Insurance Thought Leadership, and returning conference emcee, “The depth of conversations and meaningful connections being made at InsurTech North offers an opportunity like none other,” continued Fraker, “and it’s what incumbents, accelerators, investors and insurtechs value and make the time to attend.”

Agenda highlights include:

  • Wolf Pack Pitch Competition featuring startup insurtech nominations from Communitech, Global Insurance Accelerators, Holt Fintech Accelerator, MaRS, and oneeleven
  • View from the Top – understanding how CEOs perceive the changing insurtech landscape

In addition, two exciting elements have been added to the agenda that will enhance both the professional development and networking value of the event: Educational Workshops and an onsite Insurtech Expo.

“The workshops are new, and we’re excited to be enhancing the program in the direction our delegates will appreciate and have asked for specifically,” said Joel Baker, CEO MSA Research.  “This conference kick-off gives our attendees the chance to expand their knowledge of four key industry topics (Meeting the Expectation of VCs, Understanding the Life/Health Industry, The Value Proposition of Accelerators, and Understanding the P&C Industry),” continued Baker, “We’re continually building relevance and actionable take-aways into InsurTech North and feel really great about the agenda that our outstanding Advisory Committee shaped this year.”

Another value-add, the onsite Expo, offers the opportunity for attendees to meet with exhibiting insurtechs who have qualified to host a table and promote their goals and value propositions.
