BimaLab launched to make insurance more affordable for Nigerians

ATRFeb10FSD Africa and Nigeria’s National Insurance Commission (NAICOM) have partnered to launch BimaLab, an accelerator programme designed to boost the development and adoption of digital solutions for the insurance sector

BimaLab Nigeria aims to address gaps in the insurance market by educating, nurturing, and promoting innovators and Insurtech start-ups. The programme will borrow from Kenya’s BimaLab I, BimaLab II and global best practices with a focus on local experience to provide Nigeria with the most competitive and attractive start-up accelerator programme.

Ten companies will be selected to participate in the ten-week programme that will provide them with the expertise, resources, and support to develop and scale market-ready solutions that bring social and/or commercial value to Nigeria’s insurance sector.

To widen insurance coverage, FSD Africa has recently rolled out a similar accelerator programme in Ghana (InnoLab). The solutions being supported through the accelerator programmes will be expected to also speak to the needs of populations beyond their borders of origination.
