Who We Are

Aflac Inc.

Aflac is a Fortune 150 company providing financial protection to more than 50 million people worldwide. We do business in two of the largest insurance markets in the world: the U.S. and Japan. For over six decades, Aflac has had one mission – to be there for our customers in their time of need. Through forward-thinking innovations such as SmartClaim®, we pay policyholders promptly, allowing them to focus on recovery instead of financial hardship. Our strategy for growth has remained straightforward and consistent over the years – we develop industry-leading voluntary insurance products and sell them through multiple distribution channels.

Aflac Global Ventures

As the corporate venture arm of Aflac, we invest in promising young companies that develop disruptive innovations in insurance, healthcare, finance, analytics and other related fields. In addition to capital, we bring industry knowledge and expertise, and can facilitate opportunities for commercial partnerships and collaboration. More than just investors, we think of ourselves as true partners – helping early- to growth-stage startups achieve scale and realize their full potential.

Aflac Innovation Partners

A subsidiary of Aflac Global Ventures headquarted in Japan, Aflac Innovation Partners (AIP) was established in February 2019. AIP partners with startup companies in HealthTech and InsurTech, aiming to create new AFLAC business, strengthen existing business, and contribute to the further growth of its cohort of collaborators.

Our Approach

We target early- to growth-stage startups with a strong value proposition and capable management team. We look to invest in and partner with innovators whose disruptive solutions align with Aflac’s strategic interests. Our initial investment will typically range from $1 million to $3 million, with additional capacity for follow-ons, and we’re open to working with other investors.

Redefining Wellness

The definition of wellness evolves and expands as consumers look to make more informed choices about health and money. We seek out innovations that stand at the intersection of healthcare, insurance, finance, IoT, big data and analytics.

Digital Solutions

We look for transformative ways to leverage emerging digital technologies that better target new customers, offer differentiated, value-add services and enhance customer experience across touchpoints.

Insurance Innovation

We’re constantly on the lookout for new possibilities that can elevate, simplify, disrupt and transform traditional insurance models, creating new alignments and opportunities throughout the insurance value chain and benefits ecosystem.
