The Global Insurance Accelerator has announced seven companies that will participate in the 2024 accelerator program beginning Jan. 10. The 100-day program will operate in a hybrid format with in-person and virtual portions, concluding with the companies’ presentations at the Global Insurance Symposium on April 17. The GIA has also hired Jenni Gruenisen as its new alumni director, who will focus on building relationships and connections with alumni cohort companies as well as the broader insurtech ecosystem to support cohorts after they exit the accelerator program. She has experience as a mediator, attorney, coach, teacher and community volunteer, according to the announcement. She earned a bachelor’s degree in political science and her Juris Doctor degree from Drake University.
