Rollick, a company that connects dealers, affinity partners and manufacturers with customers in the boating, RV and powersports space, closed on $8.5 million in funding.

Sandbox Insurtech Ventures is one of several investment partners in Rollick’s latest round of funding, which include TechNexus Venture Collaborative, Dallas Venture Capital, Alumni Ventures and London Technology Club.

“Rollick is truly unique in the way it has established a platform with both high-quality buyers from its affinity partners, and how it’s positioned itself within the purchase process of powersport, RV and boat products,” Sandbox managing director Christopher Zock said in a statement.

Rollick said it has raised $22 million in funding from investors in the last year and that it plans to use the influx of capital to expand its platform and secure new partnerships in the recreation industry, Rollick founder and CEO Bernie Brenner said.

“The recreation category has seen unprecedented growth in the second half of 2020, as people look for ways to get outdoors, have fun and stay safe during the pandemic,” Brenner said. “We set out three and half years ago to help recreation dealers and manufacturers provide a deeper digital engagement with consumers, creating a higher quality transaction and increasing customer satisfaction.”
