The only road on the future of insurance is Insurtech.

But what is that road made of?

And where are the oportunities in a fintech branch that atracted $1.7Billion in 2016?

The presentation is assembled so that topics and a brief explanation about them is presented followed by an imediate Q&A session on them, instead of the tradicional "talk, and questions in the end"

The aim is to maintain a certain flow and envolvence of the crowd making sure it´s more of a chat than a lecture.
