London, 11 June 2018: The INSURTECH Book is officially launched today at the Shard, London where contributing authors fly in from around the world to discuss digital trends in Insurance with the leaders of UK’s insurance & insurtech industry during London TECH Week.
This was the result of globally crowdsourcing the most cutting-edge insurance knowledge, led by Susanne Chishti, CEO of FINTECH Circle & the FINTECH Circle Institute. By shortlisting writers from hundreds of key industry figures, these successful InsurTECH entrepreneurs, insurance professionals, thought leaders and investors went on to write chapters for The INSURTECH Book, the latest edition of The FINTECH Book Series published by WILEY.
As Editor in Chief Susanne Chishti, selected 3 insurtech and fintech leaders – a powerful All-Women Editorial Team consisting of Sabine VanderLinden (CEO & MD Startupbootcamp InsurTech), Shân Millie (Insurance Board Advisor & Growth Specialist) and Nicole Anderson (multiple CEO and Fintech Entrepreneur). The team worked closely with Gemma Valler, Finance Editor of WILEY to create The InsurTECH Book which already has reached the 2nd place on the Amazon Bestseller List.
The INSURTECH Book is a technology handbook for investors, entrepreneurs and FinTech visionaries, a ground-breaking guide to the disruptions, innovations and opportunities that technology affords the insurance sector. Presenting the insights, current thinking and actionable strategies from international topic-expert contributors, it explains why traditional ways of doing business will soon become irrelevant and offers a guide to thriving in the digital insurance revolution.
Susanne Chishti states that “Providing readers with the information needed to holistically connect insurance and technology, The INSURTECH Book is an invaluable source of the most current information available for entrepreneurs, innovators, insurers, investors, incumbents, analysts and consultants working in or interested in investing in this space.”
The Global Launch Event of The INSURTECH Book takes place in London, on the 11th June at 6pm at the Shard. Event information is here.
