Prima Solutions, the French insurance software vendor and ESA, the private higher education institution for insurance professionals, launch their first « hackathon » to reinvent the insurance industry.
It’s in Paris, in the headquarters of Prima Solutions, that more than 20 volunteers, developers, functional managers, students… will meet from the 5th to the 7th of April to rise to the challenge that the two actors have launched. Hackathon is a contraction of “marathon” and “hacker” and is a new form of accelerated thinking for solving, in an allotted time, a predefined issue.
“This first experience allows us to give a strong impetus to innovation. Collaborating with several players in the sector allows us to nurture innovative concepts, which we can then use to offer our clients concrete and innovative solutions that meet their needs and those of their clients.” stated Hugues Delannoy, President of Prima Solutions.
“Through this experience our students will get a taste of what working in insurtech is all about and they will work in project mode within transversal teams combining different and complementary skills.” stated Patrice Michel Langlumé, President and Academic director of l’ESA.
At the end of the 72 hours, the teams will present their projects to the jury, which will include the Prima Solutions board members and the ESA academic team. Two prizes will be given to the best teams, one chosen by the public and one by the jury.
