Guidewire Launches Insurtech Vanguards programme

Guidewire Software’s Insurtech Vanguards programme aims to identify and highlight insurtech companies of interest to the P&C industry

Guidewire Software, an American software company, has launched its new Insurtech Vanguards programme designed to identify and highlight insurtech companies of interest to the P&C industry.

The company is already involved in the insurtech community as an investor and through its PartnerConnect Solution program, which offers curated access to a host of insurtech and more established third-party partner solutions on Guidewire Marketplace. Guidewire continually explores ways to connect insurers with the latest innovations. The Insurtech Vanguards programme takes this effort to the next level by offering a channel for connecting insurers and insurtechs, the company said in a statement.

Guidewire and the insurtech industry 

“Guidewire’s experience with insurtechs, who are changing the way the P&C industry conducts business in today’s world, is significant. As evidenced by our valued ecosystem of PartnerConnect insurtech Solution partners, we have made it a priority to scout out, identify, and curate those insurtechs that are the most innovative in our industry and most relevant to our community,” said Laura Drabik, chief evangelist, Guidewire. “Our Insurtech Vanguard program will continue to identify these hot, up-and-coming companies across the globe, so that our customers have easy access to the most innovative companies in the world without needing to do the leg work themselves.” The company says that investment in the insurtech industry is growing with a total of US$7.1bn recorded at the end of 2020.
