Female Founders in InsurTech 2020 is an open innovation competition targeted at promoting female entrepreneurs with solutions relevant to the insurance industry and address technology opportunities. This is the third year Quesnay is running a dedicated InsurTech innovation competition as part of the Female Founders in Tech series.
Digital technology continues to transform the global insurance industry (with the recent pandemic further accelerating change). How will your startup fuel essential innovation?
Across the board, women are underrepresented in insurance. Especially when looking at c-suite positions...
Quesnay launched the Female Founders in Tech program in 2017 to identify and evaluate innovative technology solutions and unique talent for corporations while also providing visibility, access to capital, mentorship, and partnership opportunitiesto startups. The series has expanded to include programs in industries including financial services, insurance, mobility, and telecom. Each program drives employee engagement, inclusion, and promotes corporate-startup collaboration.
Since inception, more than 650 startups from 63 countries have applied and our winners have gone on to raise over $35M in venture capital funding and/or have been acquired by large corporations.

Hello female leaders, this is a reminder that we will be holding office hours this Friday July 10 at 12:00pm.
During Office Hours the Quesnay team will be available to answer questions regarding the competition (i.e. how to apply, is my solution eligible/applicable, etc.). As a reminder applications close on July 26.
We partnered with HeroX for a joint bid to respond to a government request for proposal. Our experience with the HeroX team was extremely positive.
There were times where flexibility was critical, their team took the approach of a true partnership. Working against tight timelines, collaborating virtually, operating in different time zones; any one of these points could have created challenges, not for this team. HeroX went the extra mile, which is a rarity for us in our past experiences in collaborating with other partners. The responsive, professionalism and level of expertise was noted and appreciated.
Other than their capabilities, we were impressed by their overall team in the way they conducted themselves. There was true core values alignment. We would absolutely invite the opportunity to work with their team again.
