Insurtech UK member Shift – one of six companies to showcase their technologies last year – was awarded the ‘Insurance Experts and Investors Award 2023’ following high praise for its strict 15-minute live pitch which saw it scored on three key metrics: innovation; potential success; and possible usage/investment. 

Ben Lazarevic, Senior Business Developer at Shift – who delivered the pitch during the event – said, “We are absolutely delighted to be acknowledged by the claims community as an innovative and successful solution. Thanks to the panel for their time and consideration, and thanks again to the ILC community for such a fantastic event.”
