"By partnering with Techstars, we’re able to take advantage of their proven ability to source and support the world’s most promising startup founders and help them achieve lift-off through initial investment, business development, and mentoring.
Through local engagement with QBE subject-matter expertise and leaders, we hope to provide a strong network of mentors and supporters to help Techstars entrepreneurs succeed — at every stage of their journey."
Ted Stuckey, Managing Director
"The reality is that companies like ours need external influences to successfully reimagine and remake ourselves. Otherwise, we remain stuck in old patterns of working, which results in iteration, not innovation.
Techstars puts us in a community with partners – big and small – who think and pursue emerging business opportunities differently. We value this and realize it is a must-have within our broader digitalization strategy."
Tom Rausch, Head of Digital Innovation
