HSB pursues technical innovation
Tech incubators and the Internet of Things
Technology is changing so fast, it's hard for most people to keep up. That's why it pays to partner with HSB for the latest developments in technology trends, exposures and coverage that will help your clients protect their critical equipment and property.
New products for tomorrow's risks
We continue to strengthen HSB's position as an industry leader in technology and innovation. And our recent investments in new tech startups and the industrial Internet of Things will help us develop new products and services for tomorrow's risks.
There's an app for that
HSB has made a seed investment in Waygum, Inc., a technology startup that is building a mobile app platform for the industrial Internet of Things. The app will allow a business to interact with multiple pieces of equipment and information in hard-to-connect areas.
Accelerating product innovation
It's an early investment for HSB's strategic venture capital group, formed in 2014 to invest in promising new technologies. "The interconnection of equipment, networks and technologies is evolving rapidly," said Greg Barats, president and chief executive officer of HSB. "Being engaged in this evolution enables HSB to accelerate product innovation."
Plug and Play technology accelerator
HSB is also sponsoring Plug and Play's Silicon Valley accelerator for the Internet of Things, bringing together promising startups with corporations, investors and experts to speed up commercial development. HSB's strategic corporate venture group in San Francisco will help guide the incubator program at Plug and Play's unique facility and have mentors on site.
HSB helps you keep pace with emerging exposures
