Funder Resources

BimaLab has created social validation for potential investors and partners, adding that rubber stamp to signal to funders, hires and even customers that insurtech has cleared some basic hurdles to test proof-of-concept and has some semblance of legitimacy.

Funding and Accountability

A large number of the BimaLab Insurtechs are self-funded. BimaLab also provides aspiring entrepreneurs with access to funding opportunities. Having access to funding can be a huge advantage for startup companies. It provides the ability to grow and have more control over their mission, product, and team.

Of course, receiving funding also comes with responsibility to ensure funds are used wisely. Measures are taken to ensure accountability from the award winners in terms of use of funds. Terms and conditions may be provided to funding recipients prior to disbursement of the funds that will capture:


Planned use of funds –with clear conditions on what the funds can and cannot be used for. We recommend a stipulation that the funds are specifically to support growth initiatives, pilots or proof of concepts, technology enhancements to the platform, etc.


Requirement to provide feedback and proof of how the funds were utilized 3 months after the award


Use the 3-monthmarker to circle back for storytelling and generate additional coverage for Funders and BimaLab
