Born out of a global innovation competition, the Pineapple team are readying to launch their insurance offering which aims to completely overhaul the traditional insurance model. Their model revolves around transparency, technology and affinity to increase the value a policyholder yields from their short-term insurance purchase - a figure that is currently estimated at around R36 for each R100.

The founders of Pineapple have backgrounds in actuarial, software development, auditing and law. They will speak about entrepreneurship in the insurance space - touching on their journey, learning and challenges as an insurtech company in South Africa
