InsurTech NY announced that it will be accepting applications for the October cohort of its growth-stage InsurTech accelerator.

The application window will be open from July 21 to Aug. 17. The program, which is open to InsurTechs around the world, will focus on growth-stage startups that have existing customers and range in funding stage between Seed and Series B.

“Many InsurTechs are able to build a product and get their initial customers; however, the true test is how to scale their business,” said David Gritz, managing director of InsurTech NY. “Our program is about helping InsurTechs to get to scale.”

The October cohort will run virtually for 12 days over a six-week period. The accelerator will focus on market traction, talent acquisition and raising funds, with the program offering access to insurance carriers and brokers looking to deploy new technologies and provide financial backing to digital managing general agencies.

The program will feature more than 15 carriers and broker members, including Arch Capital, Flagship Insurance, Greenlight Re, Nassau, Nationwide, Lincoln Financial Group, Gallagher, Newton Insurance, Swiss Re, Transverse, Sompo and Pacific Life. InsurTechs can apply at
