Collaboration with start-ups

Collaboration with start-ups

AXA is open to fresh ideas. We happily work together with start-ups that discover new ways of solving our customers’ problems – or of simplifying our own processes. 

AXA as a partner of ambitious start-ups

AXA is consciously seeking opportunities to work with start-ups that stand out thanks to their innovative business model.

We are particularly interested in ambitious companies that work with themes associated with our key activities as an insurer:

  • Big data
  • Mobility
  • Home and living
  • SME solutions
  • Process optimization

As a start-up you are an ideal partner for us if you also fulfill the following criteria:

  • You have developed an initial product.
  • You already have your first customers.
  • You are interested in working with AXA.

If we are both interested in a collaboration, we generally carry out a pilot project to start with or produce a proof of concept. Following successful completion we go on to draw up the goals for a long-term collaboration together.

Various possibilities for collaboration are conceivable:

  • We develop offerings for our customers together (products, services, touchpoints) or solutions for internal challenges at AXA (e.g. optimization of our processes). 
  • Your start-up integrates AXA insurance products into its own offering.
  • Your start-up distributes or advertises AXA insurance products in a distribution partnership.
  • We act as distribution partner for your start-up by offering your products or services to our customers.

A strategic partnership between AXA and a start-up is a win-win situation for both parties.
