Insurance4music, Klondike and Tiassisto24 are the winners of the 8th edition of Open-F@b Call4Ideas 2021, the contest for start-ups, scale-ups, young students and innovative companies, promoted by BNP Paribas Cardif in partnership with InsuranceUp and PNICube. 

Following the Digital Battle that allowed the Evaluation Panel of BNP Paribas Cardif in Italy to select the 9 best projects, plus the one chosen by the Company’s employees through a poll, the 10 finalists have challenged each other during yesterday’s Final Challenge. After the vote of the online audience, which followed the event and selected the 5 best pitches, the panel of judges composed of BNP Paribas Cardif members and external experts from various fields awarded the startups Insurance4music, Klondike and Tiassisto24. Together with the BNP Paribas Cardif R&D team, they will be supported in the development and implementation of their project, integrated into the company’s products or offering models. 

Three projects for “More Accessible Insurance” 

The topic of the 2021 edition of Open-F@b Call4Ideas, “More Accessible Insurance”, was chosen with the aim of identifying solutions that could: convey simplified communication; make the insurance experience more fluid; accelerate the speed of response to the market; improve the proposition and management of insurance activities to reach a wider audience of customers and stakeholders. 

The final event, hosted by Giovanni Iozzia, Director of EconomyUp and InsuranceUp, was attended by Roberta Avanzini, Head of Research&Development at BNP Paribas Cardif, Andrea Rangone, President of Digital360 Società Benefit and Nicolò Briante, Co-Founder of D-Heart. 

With their ideas Insurance4music, Klondike and Tiassisto24 were able to provide original inputs understanding the needs arising in the industry with innovative tools that could make “More Accessible Insurance”. 

Open-f@b 2021, the prizes for winners and finalists 

The three winners, in addition to the support of BNP Paribas Cardif, will be given the opportunity to present their project and meet other startups hosted at BivwAk! the BNP Paribas Group’s internal incubator based in Paris. 

All finalists of the 2021 edition will also be introduced to C.

This year, moreover, thanks to the partnership with PNICube – an association with 50 members including universities and academic incubators that brings together Italian academic incubators and business plan competitions, created with the aim of fostering the creation and support the market of new companies with a high knowledge content from universities – the call has also been extended to younger people in a more widespread manner throughout the country.
