Fairfax Insurance Collision Day
Tuesday, February 23, 2016 starting at 9am
Communitech Hub, 151 Charles Street West, Kitchener
Fairfax Financial Holdings Limited is a holding company which, through its subsidiaries, is engaged in property and casualty insurance and reinsurance and investment management. FairVentures is Fairfax’s innovation initiative. Fairfax and FairVentures are interested in exploring vendor, partnership and investment opportunities with startups who serve the property and casualty insurance industry or provide risk management solutions.
Your company will be of interest if you offer:
1. Solutions that can be implemented in an insurance company
- Improved business methods and tools
- Insurance-specific business processes (underwriting, claims, sales, etc)
2. Products that could become new offerings for insurance companies or impact the industry
3. Risk management or risk mitigation solutions for industries being insured, such as
- Transportation and Logistics (road, rail, water)
- Personal, Home and Auto
- Restaurant and hospitality
Could your startup expand an insurance company’s offerings, change how it interacts with its customers, or impact the processes of the organization itself? Does your model or market overlap with theirs? Communitech will put you in the room with the right people.

How will the day be formatted?
The day will begin with a presentation highlighting Fairfax’s current focus, why they’re excited to tap into Waterloo Region-Toronto tech and the value of partnering with insurance companies in their portfolio. Following the presentation, a series of private meetings will be held. Insurance companies in Fairfax’s portfolio will sit down face to face with startups that have the greatest potential for impacting the insurance industry. One startup will meet with a few insurance companies at a time, based on areas of interest, and see if the sparks fly! If an insurance company thinks a startup is a good fit for the needs of another company, they can recommend they have additional discussions in the afternoon.
