Zurich Innovation World Championship

The Zurich Innovation World Championship is open! The Zurich Innovation World Championship provides a platform for inspiring innovators to showcase transformative technologies in the key business areas of mobility, smart homes and buildings, digital health and financial planning.

Zurich has established collaborations with organizations such Startupbootcamp, Plug and Play, and SOSA that have extensive network within startup communities all around the world. They’re seeking innovative customer-focused products or services from the brightest and best startups and entrepreneurs in the insurtech space. Apply now for the chance to have Zurich help bring your products or services to a wider market.


Who can apply

There are three levels of competition: country, regional and global. At each phase, participants will be asked to provide increasing amounts of detail on their proposed pilot execution plans.

The overall winners of the country-level competitions go on to our regional rounds in Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America and Europe and Middle East. The overall winners of the regional round will then take part in the final, global round.



Three winners will be selected: gold, silver and bronze. Winners will be chosen by juries of Zurich subject matter experts, innovation leaders, and senior business executives.

The country and regional round will be announced shortly after the evaluation date in late October and early December 2018. The global round winners will be announced towards the end of February 2019.

The three winners of the Global round will partner with Zurich to bring their pilot plans to life in their chosen market or markets. The prize package comprises:

  • Resource to implement pilot program
