Cookhouse Labs is Back with Another Exciting Global Insurance Innovation Ideathon! 

Toronto, Canada, March 21, 2022 — msg global solution’s Cookhouse Labs, a gobal leader in InsurTech collaboration, co-creation and innovation, announced today that its infamous SummerHack will return for the 3rd year in a row. 

For the past 5 years, Cookhouse Labs has worked diligently to create a community of insurance, reinsurance, brokers, startups, vendors and academia from around the globe to co-create and develop solutions to tackle current and future challenges of the insurance industry. As part of this mission, the innovation hub frequently hosts wide-scale ideathons and co-creation projects, such as SummerHack, StudentHack (in collaboration with the Insurance Institute of Canada), and student bootcamps in partnership with local and international universities.  

“SummerHack gives insurers around the world an opportunity to play in our innovation sandbox for 2 days. The atmosphere is always full of high energy and creativity, and by the end of this event, everyone walks away feeling inspired and proud of the real business solutions they created in such a short time!” 

Sven Roehl, Co-Founder of Cookhouse Labs and Head of Innovation at msg global solutions

Among some of the exciting and creative solutions that result from these events is a Smart tooth that aims to lower health insurance premiums, an insurance awareness campaign that leverages everyday bread purchases, and an insurance product for those in the gig economy (such as ride-share drivers).  

This year’s theme centers on “Artificial Intelligence in Insurance” — a nod towards the powerful technology that is transforming areas across the global insurance industry and helping insurers make meaningful changes to elevate their customer experience. With the potential to improve efficiency, reduce costs, and predict customer needs well in advance, there are plenty of applications and ideas expected out of this year’s competitive event. 

Over 100 global participants typically race against the clock in these ideathons to claim the winner title, determined by a jury panel of esteemed industry leaders from top organizations, such as AXA, SCOR, and HSBC. The event is held in 3 different time zones to welcome participants from the Americas, EMEA, and APAC, adding an especially global dimension to this fast-paced competition. 

“These types of events generate new ideas that have legs to stand on. Hackathons, innovation labs, and incubators created a dedicated space to foster and promote these ideas, which can then be pitched to those working in sectors in need of disruption. Alone, you may not have the support you need to develop your idea, but these types of events help creative and diverse ideas move forward.” 

Manisha Dias, Vice President – Strategic Partnerships, SCOR

Participants of this year’s SummerHack can expect another action-packed event, complete with brand-new challenges inspired by the Artificial Intelligence theme and fantastic prizes for the top teams!
