InsurTech: Adoption Vs. Hype

It has been a busy first quarter in the Irish InsurTech space with lots going on. We have had visitors from the US and France who are keen to find out about the ecosystem here and some of our home grown InsurTechs have been flying the flag in the UK.

The theme for this meet-up is "InsurTech: Adoption Vs. Hype", and as always, we have a great line-up.
