GoWild Announces Partnership with Buddy
Accident insurance for people who participate in outdoor and adventure sports.

Pewee Valley, Kentucky – GoWild is partnering with Buddy to help protect outdoor enthusiasts from the costs of getting hurt while doing what we love. The Richmond, VA based InsureTech startup is bringing its unique outdoors focused product to the fastest-growing social media and activity tracking platform for outdoors enthusiasts.

“Working with GoWild is exciting, because we get to partner with another outdoor industry innovator to help people fearlessly pursue their outdoor passions.” says Charles Merritt, CEO of Buddy.

Buddy created the first and only on demand accident coverage focused specifically on the active outdoor community. Now GoWild members can get coverage for just a day of hunting if they choose, or the whole season. And if someone gets hurt, Buddy pays them directly based on the care received for the injury.

This partnership enables GoWild users to enjoy the outdoors, while also removing a significant barrier people have for not going out and enjoying mother nature.

"As outdoor enthusiasts, we protect our guns, bows and boats, but it's easy to forget to take care of our most important asset—us," said GoWild Co-Founder and CEO, Brad Luttrell. "We're excited to work with Buddy to help our members have peace of mind, at an affordable price and great value."

To kick off the partnership, Buddy will add in a Buddy camo trucker hat to any GoWild member who purchases an annual policy between now and June 1st, 2019.
