Startups are always looking for a way to enter the market and make a name for themselves, and one of the best ways is to join startup accelerators, also known as seed accelerators. These programs are cohort-based and offer mentorship and knowledge used to grow and push for a fixed period, ending in a public pitch. And now, Lloyd’s Lab has finalized its Cohort 8 InsurTech accelerator program, which you can learn more about below.

The L Marks-guided Lloyd’s Lab InsurTech accelerator program has finalized a dozen tech startups from across the globe for Cohort 8. Lloyd’s Lab is an InsurTech accelerator program that aims to help innovative ideas gain traction and success in the market. It is located in the heart of the world’s specialist insurance market, giving InsurTechs access to a coworking space in the iconic building and the chance to develop their ideas alongside their target audience. The program is delivered over the course of ten weeks, and start-ups, scale-ups, and incumbent companies are given the unique opportunity to work with Lloyd’s market experts to shape their innovation. Lloyd’s Lab was shaped by global innovation enabler L Marks, a leading global innovation specialist which has created over 80 programs with its partners in Europe, Asia, and North America.

Daniel Saunders, Chief Executive at L Marks, said, “Lloyd’s Lab has always welcomed “startups” of all stages, and this cohort has been no different. Over the past ten weeks, we’ve created new relationships that will see new solutions and technologies from these 12 startups deployed into the insurance market. It’s been the close collaboration between Lloyd’s and L Marks, and open collaboration between the insurance market and the startups, that has been powering open innovation in the insurance sector and supporting the market’s shared goal of sharing risk to create a braver world.”
