The MENA Insurtech Association has launched the “MENA Insurtech Competition”, a regional competition that seeks to provide a platform that identifies and nurtures the most innovative and disruptive insurtech startups in the region. Following the success of the inaugural edition which took place last year and was organized by QIC Group, Deloitte, QIC Digital Venture Partners, Google Cloud, Qatar Financial Center, Anthemis, Prifina, QLM and Plug & Play Middle East, the competition is in its second edition.

The MENA Insurtech Association is committed to creating a robust MENA insurtech ecosystem and recognizes that startups are the engine of that ecosystem. They play a vital role in bringing innovation, disruption and creativity and must be met with the necessary infrastructure and scalable resources that will help them reach their full potential and ultimately reshape the Insurtech landscape.

Shortlisted startups will have the opportunity to present their ideas to an audience of potential investors and industry leaders during the finals, which will be held at the MENA Insurtech Summit in Doha in May 2023. Additionally, they will have access to mentorship, market visibility and potential business deals with QIC Digital Venture Partners (QIC/DVP).

The Summit, which is powered by QIC Group and its ecosystem partners, will bring together over 50 regional and international speakers for a two day event that will include keynote speakers, panel discussions and workshops that will dive into a variety of industry topics in order to foster learning and collaboration between the MENA Insurtech ecosystem players.

The Competitions

Onsite competitions will take place in five countries: Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Oman and Egypt where country based panels will select the finalists who will go on to present at the MENA Insurtech Summit.

The onsite competitions will be paralleled by a virtual competition that will allow startups to participate from the wider MENA region and beyond. Twenty insurtech finalists will be selected to present their solutions at the MENA Insurtech Summit in Doha.
