Innovation at Lloyd’s Europe

Accelerating ideas together

Incubating collaborative innovation

Innovation has always been at the heart of Lloyd’s and is a fundamental pillar of Lloyd’s Europe strategy. In 2023, Lloyd’s Europe is partnering with the Lloyd’s Lab to explore insurance solutions to tackle Europe’s broadening protection gap.

For the first time, the Lloyd’s Lab 10th Cohort will feature a Europe Cyber & Climate Solutions theme, which will aim to develop innovative insurance solutions to tackle Europe’s cyber and climate protection gaps.

In addition to the main features of the Lloyd’s Lab accelerator programme, the Europe Theme will offer successful applicants access to Europe expert mentors, office space in some of Europe’s principal capitals, and participation in leading insurtech events through Lloyd’s Europe innovation team.

Mentor one of the Lab Europe Theme teams

Insurance experts from the Lloyd’s market can support an InsurTech’s work by offering insights, helping unlock data, making introductions, and championing the project within their organisation.

Team mentors will ensure start-ups are testing and tailoring their solutions in line with the Lloyd’s market’s objectives and values.

Mentors are encouraged to lead on embedding learnings from the Lab across their company and unlocking resource to support the success of the start-up, when needed.

Team mentor roles are open to Lloyd’s syndicates and Lloyd’s brokers.

Time commitment

We estimate around 2 hours per week on average, with hotspots where the time required will increase slightly to cater to increased on-boarding and off-boarding activity.
