Who should apply?

Ideal applicants would be late stage startups or scaleups with an existing market-ready product/solution relevant to the insurance industry with demonstrable proof of concept.

Products/solutions don’t have to be insurance-specific, but applicability is key. We encourage anyone who would benefit from DXC’s experience, scalability and industry reach to apply.

What should I expect from taking part?

The DXC Invitational is designed to be a light-touch program to fast-track conversations between DXC and the participants to work together on opportunities. This will be done through a series of succinct workshops to facilitate better understanding between both parties and understand the potential for a fruitful relationship.

Our aim is to quickly proceed to proof of concept and beyond to local and/or global expansion.

There will be three components to the program:


Briefing webinar, held in early April will be the first point of engagement for finalists, you will get the chance to hear from the DXC team and learn more about the program and company.


Workshops, following the briefing session will consist of more intimate interviews, taking a deeper dive to further understand your team and solution.


Pitch day; chosen finalists will be given the chance to demonstrate their solution's capabilities in front of the Invitational judging committee and a wider audience.

The winners will be announced at the pitch day. All finalists will be invited to attend.
