What to expect from us
We connect people and ideas
What will be next? By networking, listening and understanding, we sense technology trends and create new impulses. By connecting people and ideas, we help to create new business models.
Munich Re supports entrepreneurs’ innovation initiatives and our partners’ co-innovations that fit our strategic playing fields and that are designed to create new business with a distinct revenue stream. We support initiatives along the entire innovation journey from ideation and incubation to acceleration.
In welcoming the recommendations of the lean start-up philosophy, funding will be given in smaller sums and more frequently, subject to steering based on an objectives and key results (OKR) framework. This approach will allow teams to focus better on deliverables and milestones that need to be accomplished if the project is to move to the next stage.
In addition to funding innovation projects, our corporate venture capital arm, Munich Re Ventures also works closely with the Munich Re Group businesses across the globe to fund and partner with the best emerging companies that are developing new technologies and business models – and risks – to transform tomorrow’s world.
