Brussels Campus
Professionals & executives

Today’s topic: Insurtech is bringing forward new services and business models for an industry with roots in the 17th century. Picture a number plate to buy coverage on an hourly basis! Insure your friends within a shared cashback pool? Move the entire brokerage and policy management process into a mobile phone! Sooner or later, most of these initiatives become “businesses-within-a-business” having capital investment from larger parent companies, but keeping the flexibility to adapt to changing customer needs. Insurers are now more willing to collaborate and work in partnerships than ever before.

The programme:

6:00 pm     Welcome drink and sandwiches
6:30 pm     Intro by Johan Van Overtveldt, Belgian Minister of Finance
7:00 pm     Qover: Belgian, brave and creative
7:30 pm     Back Me Up Ageas!

8:30 pm     Networking drink in Vlerick lounge

Johan Van Overtveldt, Belgian Minister of Finance

“By focusing on specific activities such as insurance, market infrastructures and FinTech, progress is being made in broadening the financial landscape in Brussels.”

Keeping up with all tech developments in financial services, Minister of Finance Johan Van Overtveldt is strongly promoting Belgium as a gateway to the European market for financial technology. His approach to promote Brussels as a financial center is paying off abroad, welcoming major players such as Lloyd’s, QBE and MS Amlin.

Quentin Colmant & Jean-Charles Velge, Co-Founders Qover

“Armed with €5.5M in series A funding, partnerships with two of the world’s leading risk carriers, and a product already in market, the Qover team has big plans for 2017 and beyond.”

Qover provides insurance industry players with on-demand infrastructure APIs to build digitally branded innovative and traditional insurance products to their customers. Co-Founders Quentin Colmant and Jean-Charles and their small team have rebuilt the entire ecosystem of an insurer from scratch: it is on the cloud and genuinely digital. As a coverholder of the Lloyd’s, they manage the relationship with the risk carrier and deliver unique products that are built in house: sliced, on-demand, easy-to-use, and seamlessly integrated.

Backed by Ageas, Back Me Up was created from scratch, built for people living their lives on their phones, and looking for an insurance that fits their experienced-focussed lives.
