Our mission

Bold Penguin insurance technology for small commercial insurance agents penguin
To simplify
commercial insurance

In 2016, our founders saw a need to simplify commercial insurance. Since then, we have expanded our offerings to support the largest and smallest brokers and agents; national, regional, and specialty carriers; and non-insurance companies looking to support business insurance transactions.

Bold Penguin is expanding the boundaries of digital insurance

We enable the new generation of business insurance distribution through commercial insurance quoting software.

We empower thousands of agents, and the millions of small businesses they support, to do their best work while reducing inherent risks.

We help increase growth and efficiency while reducing costs
and errors.

What’s in a name?

There’s a lot of lore around our name. Why a penguin and why is it so Bold? And why name an insurance technology company after it?

Penguins are extremely social, loyal, and community oriented. It’s no wonder it’s our beloved mascot and alter ego. But the real story goes that our founder was watching a television show and he saw a penguin enthusiastically plunge off an iceberg into the ocean, the first to test the water. “That's a bold penguin,” he thought. Boom. The company was named. And the rest is history.
