Tinubu Square Reaches Top 5 of Corda InsurTech Challenge and Demonstrates a Unique Breakthrough Solution for Surety Industry Players

Share

Tinubu Square, a leading provider of credit insurance, surety and trade finance solutions, has reached the final “top 5” of the inaugural Global Corda InsurTech Challenge, a competition that rewards blockchain insurance startups and the innovation investment arms of insurance companies.

Organised by R3, the enterprise blockchain software developer with an ecosystem of more than 300 participants across multiple industries, the challenge invites organisations to share their Insurance CorDapps, the applications that will work on Corda, its open-source blockchain platform.

Tinubu Square has progressed through a number of different rounds, initially competing against more than 60 companies. The entrants were asked to design a CorDapp that could be used to solve a unique insurance business challenge.

Through various activities, including building a business case, developing a roadmap and presenting a live demo of the CorDapp, the entrants were shortlisted down until the final five were selected. Tinubu Square is the only European company to reach the top 5 selected companies and has been recognized with an ‘honorable mention’. The contestants will move on to the final presentations and the announcement of the winner will take place at the CordaCon event in London on October 23rd and 24th.

“The CORDA InsurTech Challenge has been a stimulating and often demanding test for the Tinubu Innovation LAB,” commented Jérôme Pezé, CEO and founder of Tinubu Square. “The LAB was created to deliver the potential benefits of technology innovation, such as blockchain, data analytics & AI to the credit and surety insurance industry. We are proud to have reached this stage of the award process which recognizes the breakthrough we have developed. Indeed we have moved a major step forward in the implementation of blockchain for trade transactions and for credit & surety insurers to contribute to this evolution. Our solution enables credit & surety insurers to guarantee a contract and process the transaction using DLT/Blockchain. The solution allows the contractor, the owner, the lead insurer and its risk distribution partners (co-insurers, reinsurers, banks, etc) to manage the issuance, validation and monitoring of the guarantee life cycle through a common blockchain solution and therefore create a shared auditable distributed ledger. We are looking forward to collaborating further with the R3 ecosystem.”

SHINE Creates Therapeutics Division, Will Attend 2019 European Association of Nuclear Medicine Conference12.10.2019 04:00:00 CESTPress release

SHINE Medical Technologies, LLC today announced the creation of a new division of the company — SHINE Therapeutics. The establishment of the division enhances the company’s ability to focus on filling critical future needs in the rapidly growing therapeutic isotope market, while continuing to leverage its radioisotope production expertise. The company’s Therapeutics division will initially focus on the development and commercialization of lutetium‑177, or Lu‑177, a therapeutic isotope that is combined with a disease-specific targeting molecule to treat cancer. Targeting molecules deliver Lu‑177 atoms to cancer sites throughout the body, where they directly irradiate cancer cells. The first Lu‑177-based targeted radiotherapy (for neuroendocrine tumors) reached the market in 2018.

SHINE is also evaluating additional medical isotopes with therapeutic properti

Smart Taxation – A Step Towards a Fair, Efficient and Growth-Friendly European Taxation Approach11.10.2019 22:01:00 CESTPress release

In a rapidly changing global economy, smart taxation is essential to drive growth and economic prosperity. However, the European Union (EU) continues to fall behind as it persists with a one-size-fits all taxation system. This year’s GLOBSEC Tatra Summit hosts a Focus Group, bringing together international experts, looking to reshape and support a smarter European tax policy. Europe is at a crossroads in adapting its tax policy to the realities of today’s global economy. The EU plays a key role in overseeing national tax rules in some areas - particularly in relation to EU business and consumer policies. The institutional changeover marks a perfect opportunity for the Tatra Summit to place major topics on the radar of decision-makers and offer efficient recommendations. So now is the time to adapt the EU’s taxation model to be fit-for-purpose. With member states around the table, European fiscal authorities should design a model that does not have a disruptive impact on national needs
