Lloyd’s Lab programme

Applications for Cohort 8 will close in

Applications for Cohort 8 are open until 23:59 GMT on 20 February

The Lloyd's Lab is an InsurTech accelerator programme which aims to help innovative ideas gain traction and success in our market. Located in the heart of the world’s specialist insurance market, the Lloyd’s Lab gives InsurTechs access to a coworking space in the iconic building and the chance to develop their ideas alongside their target audience.

Over ten weeks, start-ups, scale-ups, and sometimes mature companies, are given the unique opportunity to work with Lloyd’s market experts to shape their innovation. 

As a 330 year-old insurance market, we want to share our centuries of collective experience and knowledge with game changing InsurTechs who have new ways of thinking. We’ll give you access to the market so you can develop products, platforms and processes helping transform Lloyd’s into a digital data-driven market.

Key facts about the programme

  • We typically run two programmes per year, but we’re always keen to hear about a new solution as there might be other ways in which we can collaborate
  • We usually have 150-200 applications from around the world for each cohort
  • We aim for a cohort of around 10 teams
  • The Lloyd's market are instrumental in picking the successful teams
  • Teams usually have between 2-8 mentors each
