A Unique Opportunity

In that context, and referencing the good-better-best paradigm, anytime we get a chance to present our solution to a group of influential industry executives is good. Presenting Attestiv to a large group is even better. Presenting the primary value of Attestiv to 200 insurance industry experts, in insurance hub New York City, and sponsored by a leading US Insurtech accelerator, Plug-N-Play – that’s best. 

To recap, Plug-N-Play, based in Silicon Valley, is a leading US accelerator for insurance technology, nationally recognized as a strategic influencer in the insurance community. On November 19, 2019, in its first Focus Day in New York, Plug-N-Play invited regional insurance executives to hear from a group of 19 new Insurtechs, Attestiv being one. Each company was given 5 minutes on stage to provide an overview of its solution. The setting was unique, the room was standing-room-only, electric, and filled with interested insurance company, agency, and investor executives.

Watch the video below:

To summarize, based on a show of hands, the category of the “deep-fake” is little known in the insurance community. Deep-fake technology is a growing phenomenon and more than capable of increasing the adverse impact of claims fraud in the insurance industry.

Enter Attestiv. By registering photos and videos of assets on the blockchain using Attestiv, insurance policyholders, agents and adjusters, really anyone that plays a role in the underwriting and claims process, can now establish identity and authenticity of assets at a given point in time and space. DLT, distributed ledger technology, the new database architecture for the 2020’s and beyond, provides the necessary immutability, security, and shareability of the data. 

We were and are grateful for the chance to present at the Plug-N-Play Focus Day 2019 in New York.
