Announcing the 2018 Class of the MetLife Digital Accelerator powered by Techstars

We are excited to announce Techstars Class 140, the 10 companies that are joining the 2018 MetLife Digital Accelerator powered by Techstars in Cary, North Carolina. We spent the past six months searching the globe to look for the best Insurtech entrepreneurs to invite into our inaugural class. Our 10 companies are joining us from all corners of the United States and the globe including Boulder, London, Los Angeles, Richmond, San Jose and Singapore. Our entrepreneurs have diverse backgrounds as game developers, data scientists, insurance veterans, and more.

All 10 companies have relocated to Raleigh-Durham for the program. We kicked things off on July 16th, 2018 and will be working closely with these teams to help them accelerate their businesses during the next three months. Our program will cap off with Demo Day on Thursday, October 18th, 2018. We love Raleigh-Durham and know that 2018 is going to be an amazing year for Techstars, our companies, and the Triangle! Techstars is the worldwide network that helps entrepreneurs succeed, and strong partners and mentors help make this happen. We’re grateful for your generosity in giving your time and expertise to help our companies. We couldn’t do it without you.
