Erika Krizsan: ERIKA, THE INSURY WOMAN
Why? I like insurance! I knew, already when I was 13 years old. I will work in an insurance company. I started in Hungary at Generali. After that I started at the ERGO Group in Vienna. I worked more than 20 years in different positions, national and international in the insurance industry. My bosses knew, I wanted to learn a lot and I got the opportunity to do this. I managed and organised small- and big projects, established new companies in different CEE countries. Ones I woke up and I wanted to start my own company – it was born – INSURANCE FACTORY! I learned a lot from the best innovators from the world and from the most motivated startups!

Yes, 5 years ago, I had the crazy idea, to support the insurance industry in innovation & creativity. At that time, everybody said: “Mrs. Krizsan, Innovation in the insurance industry? We don`t need it! We have our business model already for more than 200 years and it hasn`t changed”

However I developed training methods and concepts to motivate and support the development of insurance managers mindset to the digital transformation. I organised Innovation trainings methods via Design Thinking, Business Model Innovation, EDISON Principle and some lovely co-creation training with startups and students. I have organised Innovation Talk in Vienna every 3 months and since 2015 the Insurance Innovation Day (with Award Ceremony).

This year 2017 is a very special year, because Insurance Factory will celebrate it`s 5th anniversary with friends, colleagues, startups, investors and insurance executives at the Insurance Innovation Day 2017. The event will be international for the first time with speakers from more than 9 countries – e.g USA, England, Switzerland, Germany, Croatia, Hungary, Italy, Belgium, Netherlands and of course from Austria! It will be a MAGIC, because the Event is THE MAGIC OF INNOVATION!

And for the first time, we will have an amazing INSURY Startup Award with Pitchings Session in Vienna

I had the vision to build a new insurance community in Vienna (like in Berlin, London and Zürich!) with insurers, brokers, investors, startups and all future-oriented managers. Let`s innovate the insurance industry! Mehr lesen
