CCIA said that it seeks to continually reengineer and reinvigorate its annual event. For this year's event, CCIA is capitalizing on the innovative hackathon concept with its Cap-a-thon (a.k.a. captive hackathon).

    • Teams led by subject matter experts
    • Focused on particular industries
    • Attendees aim to uncover new captive solutions
  • Upward Hartford is Hartford's new downtown venture to coach tech startup businesses into successful businesses. According to CCIA, the shared space concept and state-of-the-art work environment is a great location for this year's event.

CCIA believes that captive insurance owners, risk managers from companies considering the formation of captive entities, and emerging startup companies will all benefit from the sharing of innovative solutions to emerging cyber-risk issues.

CCIA was founded in 2011 to provide a forum focused on captive insurance programs and facilities in the state of Connecticut. CCIA said it is committed to collaboration, education, innovation, outreach, and advocacy for this expanding and evolving industry.  According to CCIA, its vision is to be recognized as a top three domicile in shaping the captive marketplace evolution with product innovation and in embracing the InsurTech age.
