Help! I Need To Insure My Self-Driving Car!

Increasingly, the cars, doorbells and watches in our lives are becoming internet-connected, data-thirsty and yes, intelligent. This trend has profound implications for the $1.2 Trillion US insurance industry and the entrepreneurs seeking to disrupt it. Our panel features a diverse range of perspectives, including (perhaps the most) prolific early-stage Insuretech VC, two accomplished founders tackling the consumer and business sides of insurance and a Fintech leader from a FTSE100 data provider.
