InsurTech Competition

On 25th of November, our team, InsurWave (5C Anthony Law Pui Huen, 5D Edwin Lam Ling Chun, 5C Brian Chung Tsz Wa, 5B Edmund Li Ze Qing), joined the Final Round in the InsurTech Competition organized by the Financial Services and the Treasury Bureau and held in Cyberport.

We have set up a booth and demonstrated how our app Microwave, jointly written by our team members, helps busy citizens choosing the most suitable insurance plan amongst tens if not hundreds of choices, while also paying attention to the needs of clients and integrating a user-friendly, easy-to-use interface. The team also demonstrated how the use of technology can help clients understand the complicated terms and conditions in the insurance industry, as well as calculating and comparing prices to keep the options economical as well. Our booth was visited frequently by judges and visitors as they all wanted to get their hands on tailor-making their best medical and travel insurance plans.

The team also gave a stunning 7 minutes of presentation about the aims of designing the app and a real time demonstration of the app to a panel of judges. During the 3 minutes Q&A, our team also handled the questions from the judges in a well manner.

The team's effort has earned them a place in the First Runner-up out of more than twenty entry teams, and a scholarship of $20,000. The school wishes this event serves as a motive for the team to pursue their careers and expand their creativity and entrepreneurship in the future.
