Predictive Health Partners is taking part in Global Insurance Accelerator’s (GIA) InsurTech program. PHP is one of 10 startups making up the 2019
cohort in Des Moines. This year’s GIA cohort teams are developing and delivering new products and business models for buying insurance, cyber risk protection, underwriting automation, advisor services, digital transformation, claims resolution, pension planning and employee benefit management.
“We are honored to be selected for GIA’s program and excited to build on the groundwork we’ve already laid,” said Predictive Health Partners Founder and CEO Jim Lewis. “This program will enable PHP to surround ourselves with some of the best minds in the industry who are helping us more quickly strategize, refine and deploy new ideas and technologies.”
The GIA’s 100-day program consists of 1:1 meetings with insurance professionals, site visits to insurer offices, networking events, discussions with InsurTech founders, education sessions, investor introductions, and much more.
“I feel like I’m in a reality TV show called Incubator,” Lewis described the experience. “It’s like a combination of The Incredible Race and Shark Tank, where all of these highly talented entrepreneurs live and work together while getting our businesses ready for what it takes for explosive growth. It’s a great experience if you’ve got the DNA for it.”
“It has been an incredible journey,” said Brian Hemesath, managing director of the GIA, in an announcement of the cohort. “Mentorship educates and empowers individual employees and ensures insurance companies are fully-equipped for pilots and partnerships which will take advantage of the new ideas each cohort brings to the table.”
The program will conclude with final presentations at the Global Insurance Symposium on April 24 in Des Moines.
