Santam Safety Ideas challenge season 3

Santam Safety Ideas challenge

In October 2018 we made a call and asked South Africans to start thinking about innovative Fintech/Insurtech solutions that can help safeguard South Africa’s future. At Santam we believe that simple and smart ideas have the power to improve lives. Insurance good and proper means not only being there for our clients when something goes wrong, but by also offering solutions that will help prevent it from happening in the first place.
