Lloyd’s Lab Begins Global Search for Tech Talent

Lloyd’s Lab has launched a global search for tech talent to partner with the Lloyd’s market and develop solutions for its unique and rapidly changing needs, in a fast-track, fast-fail environment.

For the first time in its 330-year history, Lloyd’s is opening its doors to the global tech start-up and entrepreneur community, giving unparalleled access to the world’s largest insurance market for specialist insurance and reinsurance, in support of its digital evolution.

The Lloyd’s Lab global talent search, led by applied corporate innovation specialist L Marks, is looking for applications from entrepreneurs, alongside early and growth stage companies operating in the InsurTech space worldwide. This tech talent will help deliver innovative solutions to some of the key challenges the Lloyd’s market faces and make a real impact on the market’s performance.

Over ten weeks, selected start-ups will be given the unique opportunity to work with Lloyd’s market experts to shape the next big innovation. Start-ups will be given access to a state-of-the-art co-working space located in the Lloyd’s building in London, potential funding and the chance to develop products, platforms and processes that will help transform Lloyd’s into an increasingly technology-driven market.

The Lloyd’s Lab will initially focus on four key themes, developed with the Lloyd’s market with support from The Boston Consulting Group, together with a wildcard category. These include:

  • enhancing the customer experience;
  • building a relationship-driven culture for the digital age;
  • powering data-driven underwriting; and
  • creating smart insurance products.

Applications for the chance to win a place in the first cohort of the Lloyd’s Lab close on July 22, 2018. The most compelling applications will be put forward to pitch to Lloyd’s senior leadership and market representatives on September 3, 2018, with the inaugural Lloyd’s Lab cohort starting on October 8.
