The Allianz Accelerator
At the heart of the Allianz Riviera stadium in Nice, the Allianz accelerator supports the growth of innovative, promising start-ups by offering them an intensive 5-month acceleration programme. Start-ups are offered the benefit of a network of mentors and experts, backers and major investors such as Bpifrance and Idinvest Partners, and given structured support in their development. The start-ups may also be offered a strategic partnership with Allianz or an opportunity to test their solution on the international stage thanks to the group's global presence in more than 70 countries.
In order to be selected, start-ups have to offer an innovative product or service that can have an impact on the future of insurance and that is related among others to big data, sharing economy, internet of things, insurtech or e-travel. They must have the potential for significant growth and a strong motivation to scale up their operations.
