'Scout & Match' + 'Tailored Global Exploration'
Project Kickoff
Our Open Innovation Program starts with identifying “pain points” of the Insurance companies participants of the program. From that, we will identify the focus areas to be addressed and prioritize the innovation challenges & new growth opportunities and correlated technological verticals & solutions that will guide the scouting of the startups.
Promotion & Scouting
WiderPool will leverage its global partnerships with Key Innovation Hubs and the 80+ Advisory Board members (C-Level Executives) to efficiently scout worldwide for early-and-growth stage insurtechs.
After the scouting, we conduct an initial analysis from the collected applications to pre-select the best insurtechs that have a fit with the defined focus areas.

+ Tailored Global Exploration

Due Diligence & Analysis
We will further advance in the analysis of the deal-flow by applying our internal methodology followed by a due-diligence of the 10 finalists conducted together with our experts (C-Level executives) in the Insurance market and specific technological verticals to provide a recommendation of the 3 selected finalists per focus area.
WiderPool may invest from €250.000 to € 1.8 Million in the early-and-growth stage startup(s) chosen by the corporate to start the commercial pilot or partnership. WiderPool investors and experts also have the option to co-invest.
* The Tailored Global Exploration is a continuation of the Scout & Match Program. Should you like to continue partnering with WiderPool, we can provide not only a tailored recommendation of the 3 best-fit startups to you , but also Investment in the startup you select. At this stage, we involve our experts in our due-diligence process.
