Not your typical working space!
At House of Insurtech Switzerland - HITS, we are very proud of our office affectionately called “The Innovation Garage”. This is where all the magic happens. While other companies focus on a typical office structure – cubicles, desks, chairs, and perhaps a window- our space was designed to improve creativity in our teams. A bright, colourful, open, and modern space where the focus is on creative thinking and cooperation.
With the opening of the Innovation Garage in 2018 at the Generali Switzerland headquarters in Adliswil, we created a space where startups find a place to work, get in contact with corporates and potential investors and, most importantly, thanks to the physical proximity with the operation of Generali, created the perfect environment to co-create innovative solutions together with startups. We call it Corp-Up. Our everyday includes 19 start-ups, each with 5 to 40 employees, who are working on digital solutions that could change the insurance industry.
We firmly believe that partnerships between corporates and startups create value for both parties. Corporates can benefit from quicker time to market, flexibilization of costs and investments, access to skills, and technologies. It also provides them a strong edge in the increasing war for talents. Startups, on their hand, benefit from industry expertise, market access to end consumers, geographical scale and, eventually, capital provided by corporates.
So, the next time you are around, we invite you to come and visit us. Have a delicious coffee from our espresso machine or maybe engage in a ping-pong match with any of our team members to get the energy levels going. Our doors are always open to innovative ideas, great people and new experiences.
