Lloyd's of London has announced the next 11 InsurTech start-ups that will join the eighth cohort of the Lloyd's Lab in its 10-week program bringing together InsurTechs, insurers, and brokers to test new, innovative solutions.

The teams will work to create insurance products to address issues and challenges facing the Lloyd's market.

Lloyd's said the global program received more than 150 applications from which the 11 successful teams were chosen to form the next Lloyd's Lab cohort, beginning April 25. The 11 teams were selected after impressing a panel of Lloyd's and market stakeholders with presentations about their innovative insurance products in a competitive pitch process.

For this eighth cohort, the InsurTechs were selected based on solutions focused on four key themes: decarbonization and climate change, supply chains, data and models, and claims. Lloyd's Lab also accepted wild-card entrants who presented solutions outside of the core themes, such as space safety and contract review.

The InsurTech teams selected for the eighth Lloyd's Lab cohort include the following.

  • Kita: A company that provides insurance for the voluntary carbon market to enable more high-quality carbon removal solutions and generate a positive climate impact
