C Group startups – From October 28th to November 2nd
It is a digital insurance brokerage platform that, thanks to an integrated system of AI, multimedia content and specialized consultants, offers customized solutions. The machine learning algorithm suggests in real time the most suitable insurance coverage, which can be purchased online. The user can deepen his/her knowledge of the topics of interest through specific guidelines and get support from a customer service. 99bros is aimed at the younger generations who can quickly subscribe to an individual pension plan, taking advantage of digital channels and their ability to deepen their knowledge and purchase on the web. By connecting the current account to the platform, the user receives monthly suggestions on how much to save (rounding off digital expenses + input/output analysis) and how to contribute to the PIP Cardif. The platform hypothesizes the future returns of the fund on which the plan invests and shows how much the payments made today will affect the future.
Improving the transparency of insurance products and aiming at the rapid digital policy selling, represent the “trend” of the moment; however, access to qualified information can make users more aware of their needs and choices. Therefore, dedicating the right attention to users, to answer their questions and try solving their problems is effective, above all, where consumers do not know the subject in depth and find it difficult to trust completely. It is therefore useful to provide the user community with an in-depth analysis of specific issues, creating a participatory communication network. Assibot, with a query and index formula, allows users to receive answers, automatic or on demand. The topics dealt with, focus on “risk” issues combined with the “right” so as to focus the user towards the insurance transfer. The case law is equivalent to storytelling on “risks” and harmful events..
Cop-Chi Odia Paga
COP – Chi Odia Paga is a legaltech startup that offers socially useful services aimed at training, protection and support for the defense of citizens’ rights. It is aimed in particular at victims of online hate (stalking, hate speech, defamation, cyberbullying and revenge porn) who can easily access the platform through the company’s website and request free digital legal feedback or purchase a legal support service (at the most competitive price on the market). The goal of the company is to break down the barriers that discourage citizens from taking legal action to protect their rights, reducing time, costs and streamlining the whole process compared to traditional methods. COP not only counteracts the haters “downstream”, but also reduces the phenomenon “upstream” by supporting, together with a network of partner companies, education and awareness projects for the prevention of online hatred.

H4D was founded to develop the Consult Station®, a unique solution that improves medical examination in video-conferencing with device integration allowing doctors to take reliable measurements and carry out complete medical examinations remotely. The idea was born from Dr. Baudino who, after years of experience in the management of emergency networks and response to health crises in the world, wanted to develop a solution to create a dense network of health access points thanks to telemedicine. Installed in corporate headquarters, in housing areas and in key points of citizens’ lives, the cabin facilitates access to care for all. H4D has made thousands of tele-visits and trains many doctors to offer a unique experience to the patient through reinforced dialogue and knowledge transfer necessary in the face of physical distance. Today it develops in Italy with a sales manager, a project manager and a medical director.
