WinterHack 2022: Final Pitch Event [Nov 18]

Cookhouse Labs is delighted to announce the return of WinterHack, this time with a brand-new ideathon format focused on young talent!  

This year’s ideathon aims to provide a space for students and university/college insurance programs to show their talent, knowledge and skills related to Creativity, Innovation and passion to #MakeInsuranceBetter. This is a friendly competition between universities and colleges – are you ready to represent your organization? 

In partnership with the Insurance Institute of Canada and Humber College, WinterHack 2022 is open to North American universities and colleges as an opportunity to showcase their innovative young minds and for students and staff members to learn/apply the principles of Design Thinking to real-world business challenges.  

This year’s theme is #MakeInsuranceBetter, and we can’t wait to see what our teams come up with! 

Each institution can register 1 team to represent them — with limited spots, be sure to secure your team’s spot as soon as possible!
