The Allianz Digital Accelerator introduces the “Evolve Insurance Award” to the WT Innovation World Cup to foster the development of smart wearable technology that will have an impact on safe living.

Bernd Scharrer, Co-Managing Director of Allianz Digital Accelerator GmbH says: “The number of applications related to insurance business is much higher than most people might expect. Therefore, we are looking for great new ideas that can be incorporated into the value chain of an insurance company, have the potential to add value to the lives of our customers and thereby evolve our business.”

With the “Evolve Insurance Award”, the company is looking for business model and service innovations. This includes innovative ideas regarding value propositions and value architecture, as well as revenue and cost models.
