Insurtechs and COVID-19

This an abridged version of the original article, entitled “Hartford Launches $1 Million Small Business Grant Program, Plans Additional $300,000 Grant Program, and Awards $120,000 to Small Businesses,” which first appeared on the Hartford Insurtech Hub website.

We are so excited about the momentum our teams gained as they are entering the sixth week of our 2020 Hartford InsurTech Hub accelerator. Conversations with partners have been progressing, our two mentor meetings had the highest ever attendance, camaraderie is continuing to build amongst the companies, we’ve all been exploring all that CT has to offer along with having fun in our office ping pong tournament.
