Nice point of view written by Jamie Macgregor, Senior Vice President at Celent for Startupbootcamp Insurance, which highlights that Insurance is definitely the place to be - for young talents, start-ups and innovators in general.
Well, I have a confession to make. I did set out to start a career in insurance, and specifically in insurance technology or insurtech. What attracted me most (and it still does today) was the relationship between known and unknown risks, the social benefit that can be delivered when done well and, finally, its inherently digital nature. Right now has to be the most exciting period that I’ve experienced in my career so far, with opportunities abound in the application of data, social and behavioural analytics, and risk management.
