Meet the 20 products pitching at the Insurtech Hackathon this weekend

If you’ve been following Techloy’s coverage of the biggest Insurtech hackathon event in Africa, you’ll notice that we haven’t mentioned any of the products.

That’s because we wanted to talk to each of the teams to get an idea of the product they’re working on during the two-day Insurtech hackathon organised by Inlaks.
