MetLife announces 8 finalists for ‘collab’

Update : 07 Mar 2017, 01:01 AM
Launched in November 2016, collab provides a platform for innovators to tackle future business needs and work on solutions to known challenges in customer engagement, sales process, operations, and new business model. The final eight will pitch their business ideas to senior MetLife executives at a demo day on May 19 this year. They are competing for a chance to win a $100,000 contract to implement a pilot project within the insurance giant. Over the next three months, these finalists – Capabiliti, Democrance, Digital Fineprint, Flamingo, Good Parents, Shift Technology, Sureify and Uniphore – will receive tailored mentoring and access to training on key topics such as B2B sales, insurance industry idiosyncrasies and fundraising for enterprise startups. MetLife has also assigned over 35 “staff champions” to assist them. Chris Townsend, President of MetLife Asia, said: “We recognize the importance of innovation and collaboration, and we believe working with start-ups can help drive greater value for our business and deliver a differentiated experience for our customers.”
