Rebellion Consulting are proud to have successfully lead the build and launch of a digital insurtech start-up into 2 European markets.

Rebellion Consulting were engaged in early 2018 to lead the development and delivery of iptiQ a new digital insurance startup in Switzerland incubated by Swiss Re using a B2B2C business model.

IptiQ partners with huge retail brands with little or no insurance proposition and provides a digital insurance backbone including full operations, call centre, claims handling and an innovative technical insurance platform.

Starting from a vision and business case we lead the delivery of the overall platform, including a brand new microservices, cloud-first technology strategy and agile/ DevOps delivery model.

This included launching 2 brand new insurance products (one of them Cyber) into the first 2 target markets Germany and Switzerland and successfully launching with iptiQ's first partner.

We were responsible for managing and working with multiple partners, consultancies and independent contractors throughout the 2 year assignment including a distributed workforce based in Switzerland, Poland, Bulgaria, Greece and the UK totalling over 65 individuals.

Andreas Schertzinger CEO at Swiss Re iptiQ EMEA P&C, said the following of our contribution;

"James has been involved in building iptiQ EMEA P&C from the very beginning, initially defining the technology strategy and ultimately on the executive team responsible for agile delivery of the platform build. 
In April this year he lead our launch into Germany and has now successful steered us through to delivering our first partner in Switzerland. He is a highly valued member of our executive team who’s advice and delivery focus have been instrumental in our success so far and we hope in the future".
