LEAP Subsidiary PROTO Accelerator InsurTech Now Selecting First Startup Cohort Among Strong International Competition
LANSING, Mich. – Following an October 2018 program launch, PROTO Accelerator InsurTech has just closed the 2019 application process. Notably, international interest in the program is high, with two-thirds of applications received coming from outside the U.S. This new interest from abroad has yet to be seen among other established Michigan accelerators, which has the potential to offer PROTO InsurTech program founders the Lansing Economic Area Partnership (LEAP), Delta Dental and Farm Bureau a possible competitive advantage in the Michigan tech and insurtech startup space over the coming year.
