The NexGen Insurance Innovation Challenge (NIIC) is Guam’s first insurance-specific innovation competition. Its mission is to pursue, promote, and cultivate sustainable innovation for Guam’s Insurance Industry. NIIC is an opportunity for college students to be a part of a collaborative effort to transform the way the current insurance industry does business. Students will draw on their creative talents and problem-solving skills to find inventive and new ways for insurance professionals to design the next-gen customer experience. All culminating at the Insurance Risk and Leadership Symposium where students will meet and learn from insurance professionals to get an up-close view of the countless career opportunities that insurance has to offer. During the symposium the final contestants of NIIC will pitch their product to a panel of judges for a grand prize.

We invite all innovators to take part in this unique opportunity to invent a better future for Guam!
