Niramai (the winner), AliveCor (the runner up) and InSensus (third place): these are the winners of Open-F@b Call4ideas 2017 proclaimed during the final event of the fourth edition of the international contest promoted by BNP Paribas Cardif, among the first ten insurance companies in Italy1, in collaboration with Insurance Up, Open Up and Medici. To select in real time the best ideas on Preventive Insurance, a new concept of insurance no longer based just on mere compensation but on prevention, protection, assistance and interaction with the customers, were both a jury of experts and the audience in the hall. They voted the winners during an exciting Innovation Battle, where finalists promoted their ideas by challenging each other with passion and creativity. The three winners will now be supported by the BNP Paribas Cardif R&D team that will support them in the development and realisation of their project, by taking into account the needs of the market and of the Company.
Open-F@b has been welcomed by start-ups and innovators, from all over the Italian country, who submitted their projects from Lombardy to Sicily, from Puglia to Friuli Venezia Giulia and so on. Not only. This year, the call4ideas received so many subscriptions from abroad, that international participants are even half the total.
With the presenting of Luca Viscardi, radio presenter and blogger, the event was held yesterday at “Spazio Gessi” in Milan and was opened by the greetings of Isabella Fumagalli, CEO of BNP Paribas Cardif in Italy, Andrea Rangone, CEO of Digital 360 and Giovanni Iozzia, Director of InsuranceUp and EconmomyUp. This year’s novelty was the Innovation Battle: a real challenge among the finalists who have competed face-to-face and have been voted by BNP Paribas Cardif Top Management, innovation experts, journalists and bloggers, and also by the audience in the hall, who was able to participate directly in the choice of the winners. The program of the event, which ended with the award ceremony of the winning projects by Andrea Veltri, Chief Marketing Officer & Strategy of BNP Paribas Cardif, was completed by Q&A for the finalists and by the speeches of Insurtech experts that brought their experience. Among them, Amit Goel, Founder and CIO of MEDICI and Aziza Idrissi Janati, Startup Program Lead Manager of OpenUp and Chedy Riahi Partnerships Manager of OpenUp.
