Guest Details

InsurTech Hartford Founder and President (and Godfather of InsurTech), Stacey Brown, joined the show to share what drove him to start the community years ago, how it’s evolved into a thriving, international source of impact for the future of industry, how the InsurTech Hartford Symposium is evolving for its fourth year, and the exciting launch of communities in Chicago, Atlanta and now New England.

Highlights from the Show

  • Stacey started his insurance career in an IT role, and had an opportunity to grow his path into the digital opportunities that started to surface in the 2010s
  • In 2017, looking at the developments in the space, he saw a need to build a community in Hartford to foster the opportunities in the region because of its unique confluence of companies, educational institutions and local and state government
  • He started InsurTech Hartford to drive networking in the space, but also to help grow the community itself through a variety of activities, like working with local schools (high school and college) on their programs, letting startups pitch their solutions, and more, including their annual InsurTech Hartford Symposium
    • This year’s Symposium will be at Mohegan Sun, April 17-18
    • Programming will feature a single track so the event can be more focused and communal
    • There will be roundtables and other ways for people to work together on issues more directly
    • The networking space will continue to be big, open and inviting to encourage sharing of ideas, building of relationships and learning about all the great solutions out there
  • They’ve expanded to help grow similar organizations in other cities, starting with InsurTech Chicago and InsurTech Atlanta
  • On February 28th, the first event of the new InsurTech New England will take place in Boston’s Seaport district, with a panel, Meet the Startups session and lots of networking as we start to build a community to serve the rest of New England (register at
