COLUMBUS, OHIO, Jan. 19, 2021 – Rapidly growing insurance technology provider, Bold Penguin, announces today its collaboration with The Agency Collective (AC), a new type of premier network partner for insurance agencies. Bold Penguin will be AC’s exclusive small business insurance distribution partner and bring its agency technology to the AC’s 500+ agency partners.

“We are thrilled to launch our collaboration with The Agency Collective. This is a big advancement in our mission to decrease the time from quote to bind across the board for independent agents while protecting the all-important role of the human touch,” said Marc DeLeonibus, Co-founder of Bold Penguin.

The AC’s partner agents will access Bold Penguin’s technology through a terminal designed for independent agents.
