"Insight Partners has always impressed me with their ability to target relevant and cutting-edge technologies. I like to say if they're working on or aware of something, I'm likely missing out on the next big thing that's going to help me achieve our goals. So, being on the front lines of awareness here is really super exciting for me..." Rhonda Gass
