4 Reasons Founders Should Bookmark the New Insight Website
With more than 25 years of experience, Insight has established a top-tier position in software investing through times of market turbulence, a global pandemic, political unrest, and multiple tech hype cycles. Coming off a record-breaking 2022, we’re excited to tell our story with a completely new website. The new site is a testament to the expertise of Insight’s team and our dedication to being the best partner to software companies at every stage of growth.
Here are the four useful things founders should bookmark on the new site:
- Sectors: Powerful insight into the market
- Onsite: Insight’s secret engine for scale
- Stories: The journey from startup to ScaleUp
- Ideas hub: More than a blog
Sectors: Powerful insight into the market
Sector pages offer an unprecedented look into the pulse of the market as Insight sees it. These new sector pages showcase how we’re tracking a space, how much we’ve invested in the sector, and our most recent investments. This data is live and updated regularly, so be sure to bookmark sectors of interest and check back frequently.
In this section, you can find:
- How much Insight has invested in a particular sector
- How many companies we have invested in within the space
- Thoughts from our investors on the space and what we’re looking for
- How many companies Insight is tracking in the space
- Our recent investments
For example, you can see from our AI/ML sector page that (at the time of writing) Insight has invested $4.7B across 104 companies in this space, tracking over 13,612 companies since 2016.
With our expansive network of buyers, builders, and talent, founders should bookmark their sector’s page to stay up to date on Insight’s investment activity in the space.
Onsite: Insight’s secret engine for scale
As an investor, Insight’s responsibility is to help our portfolio companies grow and scale. What sets Insight apart from other investors is our team of 130+ operators in sales/customer success, marketing, product/tech, and talent.

Stories: The journey from startup to ScaleUp
There’s a reason our portfolio stories are featured at the very top of our homepage. Insight is a dedicated partner at every stage of ScaleUp growth, and our team knows software better than anyone. Our new homepage is focused on telling these success stories to celebrate our portfolio and inspire the next generation of founders.
For example, from Insight’s homepage, you can read the story of our portfolio company monday.com. Beginning with Insight’s investment in series B, advising with a company rebranding and creation of a successful channel partners program through Onsite expertise, and participating in their series C fundraising round. In mid-2021, the partnership and hard work paid off as Insight supported monday.com through a successful IPO.
There’s a reason top founders partner with Insight — we’re committed to doing the hard work required to scale a company, and we’re equally committed to celebrating success.
