It can be a very lonely place. InsureTech NY gives smart and motivated founders a lot of valuable information on 'how' to get from Idea.... to partnership.... to pilot..... to cap raise. The founders of InsurTech NY and their panelists understand both the challenges and opportunities you will face and work hard create an environment that is full of support and guidance."
