Tour de Insurtech 2023 is back for a third year – with a surprise NYC stage, plus even more insurtech and fintech riders!
It’s back due to popular demand! Genasys Technologies’ Tour de Insurtech returns for the third year in a row this September in the UK, and this time includes a surprise US stage. A total of 54 industry professionals will come together to share their passion for cycling and all things insurtech and fintech.
In the UK, 46 riders will don their Lycra to tackle 515 kilometres (345 miles) comprising eight stages including London, Nottingham, Reading and Bath. For 2023, a US stage of the tour has been announced which will take place in Central Park, New York, with eight riders covering 40 kilometres (25 miles). Each UK and US stage will be led by a range of industry stalwarts, with budding racers earning their bragging rights for the year.
Inspired by cycling enthusiast André Symes, Group CEO at Genasys – who envisioned the event as a way of bringing people together from across the sectors to reconnect after months of lockdowns during the pandemic – it’s quickly become an annual staple. Tour de Insurtech is now recognised as an opportunity for professionals to come together to share their passion for tech outside of the usual meetings, conferences and calls.
André Symes, Genasys Technologies’ Group CEO, says:
“At Genasys, we’re all about the impact of collaboration to use technology for the benefit of the consumer while providing the ability for insurance and financial companies to deliver and succeed fast.
“We know from our previous Tour de Insurtech events that bringing together some of the coolest people in tech in this unusual setting, and encouraging open and agenda-free conversations can act as a catalyst for ideas to evolve which have the potential to positively influence the evolution of insurtech and fintech. We can’t wait to get going.”
This year, Genasys has partnered with mobile application Breez Go which plants trees as you drive or cycle to offset carbon emissions. Breez has recently launched “Road to 100k Trees” where for every 10 miles cycled or 100 miles driven, a tree will be planted. Breez aims to plant 100,000 trees by the end of this year, and riders will have access to this initiative throughout each stage of the tour.
