Thank you for your interest in the 2021 ACORD InsurTech Innovation Challenge!

The ACORD InsurTech Innovation Challenge is open to organizations and individuals. Candidates must present a well‐defined concept for a product or service, which demonstrates the potential to disrupt traditional approaches to insurance and transforms the way we think about the industry.

In 2015, we started an innovation conversation in the insurance industry. Now you can help us keep the momentum going.

The 2021 ACORD InsurTech Innovation Challenge will take place virtually in New York and London. In this form, you will have the option to select your preferred regional event.

  • Initial Submissions will be evaluated by the judges, and selected innovations will qualify to move on to the live-pitch round. 
  • Live Pitches will be presented virtually to a panel of judges at AIIC London or AIIC New York. There will be one winner selected at each event. 
  • Winners and runners-up will also present virtually in a VIP Showcase at their location, and/or at other 2021 ACORD events. 


Applicants must not be engaged in business for more than four (4) years, or have outside capital funding of more than five million U.S. dollars ($5,000,000) or its foreign equivalent, all determined as of the date that ACORD begins accepting applications to the Challenge.


By submitting this application, you agree to the AIIC Rules and Regulations. If you need to review those documents again, please visit the AIIC website and navigate to the criteria page.

The pitchfile must adhere to this name convention: AIIC2021, COMPANY NAME, AND PREFERRED REGION (NEW YORK OR LONDON).
