Columbia Economic Development Dedicates September to Insurance Technology
Department Designates the month of September 'Insurtech Month'
CED will mark the end of Insurtech Month by exploring the future of the industry and Columbia's role in that future. Kay Hampton, CED Deputy Director, states that, "Columbia is the number four city in the nation for attracting millennials, and in the top five for high-tech employment growth. We were placed in the top fifty best cities to start a business in 2020 by Inc. Magazine. Combine these things with the incredible amount of talent, both young and seasoned, we have in Columbia and we believe we will continue to be an industry hub with the ability to drive transformation and influence the future."
For visibility into what that future will look like, CED is hosting an insurcast on September 29 that will be available online and open to the public. The insurcast, entitled The Future of Insurance Technology is Now, will feature six young insurance professionals who are already very accomplished and contributing a significant amount of value to both the industry and to Columbia's standing in it. CED invites anyone who is interested to sign up at its Zoom webinar site (https://zoom.us/
