Innovation comes from the startup.

But a startup has only so much power to bring those new ideas to life. When first starting out, the labor required to lift the operation above sea level is so immense that innovation gets lost in the noise of to-do’s.

On today’s episode of FNO: InsureTech, we are joined by Ted Stuckey, the Managing Director at QBE Ventures. In this role, Ted looks to invest in technology solutions that have the potential to transform QBE and the international markets in which they operate.

Tune in to this episode to hear Ted’s insights on the insuretech space, specifically what makes a fruitful insuretech-corporation collaboration.
