October 15, 2020

This year the Corda Challenge: Insurtech was back bigger than ever! We are delighted today to announce the five start-up finalists that have made it through two rounds of judging and have proved their stripes against numerous other applicants. Over the next two months, these start-ups will now build out their prototypes on Corda to be in with a chance of winning the challenge.

We are extremely grateful to have B3i onboard as a sponsor this year. Their expertise as a consortium of insurers alongside their fluidity platform, which is built on top of Corda, allows the challenge participants to leverage their expertise to build truly ground breaking solutions. For this challenge B3i proposed a problem statement focussed on creating a fraud detection solution. You can see more information on this in their video below:

With numerous submissions, we were thrilled at how quickly insurance sector came together to solve industry wide problems using Corda. The quality of the applications was very high, but today R3 is pleased to announce the five finalists:
