InsurTech is the rising star of FinTech, but the culture gap between tech startups and insurance veterans has slowed the ability of the industry to realise the benefits of new technologies. DataArt is playing an active role in bridging this gap through its active participation in InsurTech events and by delivering innovative digitalization solutions across the industry. One of the ways that DataArt helps InsurTech to succeed is by supporting and/or establishing accelerators, innovation labs, and hackathons designed to bring people and companies together to create the digital future for the insurance market.
