What’s happening in The DIA Community | DIA Community News

Written by Roger Peverelli and Reggy de Feniks - Founders The DIA Community on 4 Feb, 2019

Another update about some of the insurtechs we had on stage during previous DIA editions. We don’t let just anybody show&tell their solutions. They have to go through a thorough selection process, so we can make sure that what you see on stage is truly worth your attention.
This also works the other way around. It helps the insurtechs to further their development and increase their growth opportunities.
You can imagine our excitement when we realized there are so many success stories that we have plenty to share with you! Check out Life After DIA!
