MIAMI, June 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Bullfrog Ventures has been acquired by Rokk3r (ROKK), an idea-to-exit company builder and technology consulting firm founded and headquartered in Miami, Florida. Terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.
Bullfrog was founded in 2016 with a clear mission: to accelerate the transition of insurance solutions to be more predictive and preventive, reducing material damages and improving people's lives.
