Thank you for all those who have applied to the program. After months of rigorous review and selection, we are very excited to announce the finalists for the Manulife BOOST program. For the inaugural program we received an overwhelming 280+ applications and selected the following 12 startups to pitch to our Senior Leadership Team. These 12 finalists did a fantastic job providing an overview of their solutions, captivating our leadership team and painting a clear vision for the future of insurance.
We plan on continuing discussions with these finalists and will announce the 2021 Manulife BOOST cohort in the coming weeks. “Regardless of the outcome, all the finalists will have achieved high visibility and will go away with meaningful feedback and recommendations on how to advance their ideas. For the winners – there will be two or three – it will mark the start of a collaboration with Manulife to hopefully bring their products to the fastest growing, most exciting and potential-packed region in the world.” Said Mark Van den Broek, CIO & COO, Manulife Asia.
