Travelers Institute Program to Highlight Lessons in Business Innovation
The Travelers Institute, the public policy division of The Travelers Companies, Inc. (NYSE: TRV), will host a webinar on Wednesday, July 14, titled "Can You Innovate Like a Unicorn?" The event will focus on the strategies that companies are using to stay ahead of changing risks and evolving consumer preferences while adapting to increased digitalization. The session will feature insights into the world of rapidly growing startups that are valued at $1 billion or more - known by venture capitalists as unicorns - and highlight the ways that business leaders can learn from these entrepreneurs to spur innovation at their own companies.
"The accelerated pace of change happening across industries, and certainly in the insurance industry, presents both risks and opportunities," said Kevin Smith, Executive Vice President and Chief Innovation Officer at Travelers. "We look forward to sharing Travelers' approach to developing innovative insurance solutions that aim to exceed the expectations of our customers, agents and brokers."
The webinar, which is part of the Travelers Institute® Wednesdays with Woodward® series, will be co-hosted by the Master's in Financial Technology program at the University of Connecticut School of Business. The event is free and open to te public and will take place at 1 p.m. ET. Anyone interested in registering can sign up here.
Joan Woodward, President of the Travelers Institute and Executive Vice President of Public Policy at Travelers, will moderate the discussion. Panelists are:
"Only a small number of companies reach unicorn status, yet their stories can help others build innovation into their own organizations," said Sabine VanderLinden, Co-Founder, CEO & Managing Partner at Alchemy Crew. "Whether it's a startup or a large corporation, innovation begins with one project and should be highly focused on delivering the best experiences for customers, partners and employees."
