Insurtech on the Silicon Prairie is a one day insurtech event bringing national experts, companies and regulators to Nebraska for a one-of-a-kind conference focused on the rapidly changing insurance landscape and technology. Speakers and panelists will cover a range of insurtech topics and perspectives including blockchain, regtech, insurtech trends, startups, use of insurtech to improve operations, insurtech regulation and insurtech investing.
Insurtech on the Silicon Prairie is organized by the Nebraska Department of Insurance and the Nebraska Insurance Federation. We believe in fostering a better understanding in the rapidly changing world of insurtech, and are happy to host this event. As one of the leading insurance hubs in the United States with over 110 domestic insurance companies, Nebraska ranks #2 in the nation in domestic surplus (over $205 billion), and #3 in the nation in domestic assets (over $650 billion).
NEBRASKA DEPARTMENT OF INSURANCE
The state of Nebraska is part of the U.S. insurance regulatory framework which is a highly coordinated state-based national system designed to protect policyholders and to serve the greater public interest through the effective regulation of the U.S. insurance marketplace. Through the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), U.S. insurance regulators establish national standards and best practices, conduct peer reviews and coordinate their regulatory oversight to better protect the interests of consumers while ensuring a strong, viable insurance marketplace. U.S. insurance regulators also participate in the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) along with the NAIC by participating in all of its major standard setting initiatives, including working with fellow regulators from around the world to better supervise cross-border insurers, identifying systemic risk in the insurance sector, and creating international best practices.
Nebraska Insurance Federation

Founded in 1854, the city of Omaha has always been a dynamic, energetic city continually transforming itself. Whether it was the Native American Indian tribes, pioneers, railroad laborers or meat packers, everyone who came to call Omaha home helped shape its current cultural diversity, hard work ethic, and friendly demeanor. Named after an American Indian Tribe, Omaha means "Those going against the wind or current", Omahans proudly continue to live up to the name.
