ABOUT US

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.

THE 2018 VENUE

The Strategic Air Command
& Aerospace MUSEUM

The Strategic Air Command (SAC) & Aerospace Museum, located between Lincoln and Omaha near Interstate 80, utilizes over 300,000 square feet of exhibit, education, and event space to educate, inspire, and entertain its guests who come from Nebraska, across the country, and around the world.  The museum first opened in 1959 with the mission to commemorate the aircraft of the Strategic Air Command.  The museum became well-known by giving the public the opportunity to visit an impressive array of aircraft that helped SAC preserve the peace during the Cold War.

In a natural extension of the Omaha community’s civic pride and longstanding support for Offutt Air Force Base, community leaders began a campaign to develop a new state-of-the-art facility that would not only house SAC aircraft and artifacts, but also provide a venue for the restoration of aircraft, preservation and display of historical artifacts, and the education of future generations in the areas of history, technology, and science. The museum moved to its current location in 1998 upon completion of an impressive new indoor facility. Click on the logo to visit their site.

Consumers expectations have evolved quicker than insurance carriers. We need to continue to break down the process and partnering with Insurtechs is part of sorting this out.
