0/20 Graded Instructor Consent Required. This course will embed students for ten hours per week in one of eleven InsurTech startups involved in the InsurTech Accelerator run by Startupbootcamp, and located at 20 Church Street in Hartford. Service to the venture assigned through experiential learning opportunities constituted the requirement for the course. The aim is to provide students a unique opportunity to engage and participate in entrepreneurial ventures in a growing industry sector, and one particularly pertinent to the region. This will benefit individuals interested in gaining experience in new ventures, and exposure to this fast growing sector. Participation in key programming hosted by Startupbootcamp during the semester may also be required. This course is a pilot of a larger InsurTech Fellowship program that will launch in Fall 2018, and is sponsored by the Connecticut Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (CCEI), University of Hartford Barney School of Business, and the UConn School of Business. Interested students will need to apply directly with CCEI staff to be eligible to enroll in this course.
