On Sept. 5–6, insurance industry professionals gathered in Dallas, Texas, to exchange ideas about innovation and change at the Twelfth Annual Entrepreneurial Insurance Symposium (EIS). As part of the symposium, insurance entrepreneurs, companies, agents and vendors were invited to submit their ideas for innovative insurance products to a competition modeled after the ABC television show, “Shark Tank.” Six finalists were given 10 minutes each to pitch their ideas, products and business plans to the Entrepreneurial Insurance Alliance (EIA) judges’ panel and more than 400 C-level insurance executives, venture capitalists, private equity and other insurance investment professionals who attended the symposium.

Keith Roux, principal, Century Equity Partners, and Joseph Scheerer, principal and managing director, Stonybrook Capital, served as the judges for the competition, moderated by Jason Rotman, partner, Aquiline Capital Partners.
