Swiss Re Foundation Entrepreneurs for Resilience Award.


The Swiss Re Foundation Entrepreneurs for Resilience Award recognizes entrepreneurial initiatives that take innovative approaches to build resilient societies and realizing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. While resilience is the core theme of this annual program, its specific focus changes from year to year.

The 2021 Resilience Award focuses on innovative solutions that increase financial access to healthcare in low-income communities. More specifically, we are looking for innovative, market-based solutions that increase the household resources available for healthcare and/or reduce health shocks that lead to poverty or economic vulnerability following a disease or an accident.


  • Three finalists are invited to pitch their ventures face-to-face to an award jury consisting of senior Swiss Re experts, academic representatives, and selected Swiss Re clients.
  • The total prize money of USD 700 000 is divided amongst the winner (which receives up to USD 350 000) and two runners-up.

DEADLINE: November 8, 2020.
