A chilean company wins the Zurich Innovation Championship

LISA Insurtech was one of the 12 companies that won the Zurich Innovation Championship representing Zurich Chile.

LISA Insurtech, one of the companies that represented Zurich Chile was one of the 12 winning startups in the world final of the Zurich Innovation Championship, standing out among more than 2,600 participants.

The startup participated in the Local Pitch Day in our country in January of this year, in which it was selected along with Griin.cl, achieving the opportunity to participate in the world final of the competition. The competition had four categories: Simplification, Sustainability, Prevention and Mitigation and Reimagined Insurance. LISA Insurtech was selected in Simplification.

“The breadth of ideas we received from startups around the world was incredible and gives us a glimpse of what the insurance of tomorrow will look like,” said Ericson Chan, Group Chief Information & Digital Officer at Zurich, following the awards. “Our winners have thoughtful and innovative solutions, and we look forward to developing them together to provide new solutions for our customers and simplify the way we interact with them,” he added.

The 12 selected startups are now working with Zurich to prepare an operational plan for a three-month acceleration phase, a new addition to this year’s competition. During this stage, the winning companies will benefit from financial and non-financial support, as well as mentoring by Zurich executives and experts and access to business use cases, after which an implementation phase will bring the successful ideas to life and scale them globally.

“This is when it gets really exciting as we collaborate to test, grow and execute, something that enables joint adoption of the most promising use cases,” said Stuart Domingos, Head of Group Innovation at Zurich.
