A blockchain competition aimed at fostering innovation in the insurance industry has been launched by Lakeside Partners.

The prize for the winners is a mighty $100,000, as well as a host of other benefits.

Also, included in the winner’s prize:

  • a year’s free office space in the Lakeside Business Centre in Zug, Switzerland
  • 12 months of comprehensive coaching from a team of experienced entrepreneurs, industry experts and C-level executives
  • a presentation slot at 2018

The second and third prizes also gain a year’s free office space in Zug.

You can enter the competition here.

The event is billed as the ‘industry’s leading business-to-business innovation platform’ where the winners will ‘rub shoulders with the best of top management’.

The competition website states that:

“Switzerland is one of the largest insurance markets in Europe and its multiculturalism doesn’t only present an ideal testing market for insurers. The fact that some of Blockchain’s driving organizations have their headquarters in Zug and that politics has acknowledged the location’s potential for the FinTech market reinforces our efforts to start up a vessel via the Blockchain Competition which would have the potential to discover, reward and support unique ideas in the long term.”
