Effectively immediately we are able to say that our startups can benefit from the unbeatable corporate consulting opportunities offered through uniVersa and its corresponding network. For up and coming companies, the right insurance protection is often over looked and does not typically stay on the top of the mind of most. Alternatively, even those who take the time to do the proper research can still make mistakes in picking the right types and amounts of insurance for their business needs. That's exactly why we have formed our new found alliance with uniVersa. We're very much looking forward to the guidance they'll provide our startups through offerings such as workshops and personal meetings, so that our startups can have a solid insurance foundation right from the beginning. The relationship will work mutually, as our startups will also help uniVersa find new methods of innovation through digitazation. Eric Weber, Managing Director for the SpinLab, and Rocco Strauss, Organizational Director of uniVersa for Germany, emphasize that this will be a long lasting and productive relationship. "As the oldest private health insurance company in Germany, naturally it makes sense to support the mission of the SpinLab in central Germany. Not only financially, but also with our years of acquired expertise."
Since their founding in 1843, uniVersa Insurance Company has evolved into a corporation with long standing traditions and massive amounts of combined experience. The company holds the title of being Germany's oldest private insurance offering, dating back to 1857. The company employees over 9,000 personnel, and sales partners across the nation are heralded as competent consultants to customers.
