With regional and international start-ups from the relevant technology fields.


InsurLab Germany is THE platform to connect the insurance and InsurTech world with each other.
The initiative was the first InsurTech-Hub to be included into the de:hub network of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
The initative for InsurLab Germany originally came from the Mayor of the City of Cologne, the Chamber of Commerce of Cologne, the University of Cologne, and the TH Cologne. Meanwhile, the InsurTech-Hub is operated by InsurLab Germany e.V., which was founded by several German insurance companies, universities, and startups.

InsurLab Germany e.V.


Uniting a corporate’s knowledge of the insurance industry and its experience in the business model with the fresh mindset of entrepreneurs and their disruptive ideas is one of the main drivers of the InsurLab. Thus we host several events in which by connecting with each other the participants gain new and valuable insights into the others mindsets and develop new and innovative ideas and concepts together.
During the course of hackathons programmers, project managers and graphic designers develop software for a specific topic chosen by the participating members.

In our workshops we address hot topics of digitization and innovation with our members und participating startups. We do offer pitch days as well as reverse pitch days for insurers. Both offer the unique opportunity for the participants to receive valuable feedback from the corporate´s or entrepreneur‘s perspective on new innovative ideas or other types of problems.
