Security is everything – especially in Cologne. The city on the Rhine is one of the most important locations within the insurance industry and combines traditional companies with innovative insurtech start-ups. As evidence of this, the Digital Hub Cologne is not only working on classic products, but also completely rethinking the subject of insurance.
Generating new ideas and helping to shape a traditional sector: the InsurTech Hub Cologne is actively committed to the digitisation of the insurance industry. Start-ups are brought together with established companies from the DACH region to work on solutions to meet future demands in the insurance world. In addition, knowledge transfer between companies in the field and the world of science is being facilitated with partners such as the University of Cologne, helping to pave the way towards a modern insurance industry. InsurLab Germany e. V. offers co-working spaces, providing room for dialogue and collaboration between start-ups, scale-ups, traditional insurance companies, investors and other network partners. Furthermore, in conjunction with Koelnmesse, the Hub organises insureNXT, an international congress and expo where the latest insurtech trends are presented each year.

Factory projects are essentially collaborative in nature and conceivable in all kinds of (industry) constellations.
