Our investments have included Twitter, Shutterstock, Tumblr, Qualtrics, Virgin Pulse, plus many others. Our scale, experience, and unique focus allows us to find great companies, support their growth, and provide solid returns for our investors.

What differentiates Insight? While we invest in a variety of sectors, we tend to focus on enterprise infrastructure software, cybersecurity, software as a service (SaaS)- B2B and B2C, and marketplaces. Our unique success formula includes three key pillars 1) unrivaled sourcing by our analyst team, 2) strong focus on growth stage software, and 3) value added post investment with resources provided by our Onsite consulting team.

Our Investment Analyst program focuses developing professionals in the venture and PE investing business. You will receive learn on how to best speak to entrepreneurs, different business models that are attractive to Insight, how deals are structured and modelled, and all aspects of the lifecycle of a deal. You will be supported by an analyst mentor, your team members, and partners.

Few leading investment venture/PE organizations offer the type of opportunity that Insight Venture Partners offers undergraduates in their first job. The life blood of our organization is sourcing, and you will be immediately thrust into the chaotic world of venture funded business. You will be speaking with entrepreneurs every day, learning from them, questioning them, and ultimately recommending if their business is worth considering for investment. We have a tradition of promoting from within and developing the skills that will propel analysts in their careers.
Sourcing venture businesses is not easy work

Funding growth stage venture business in the technology space today is not easy work. It is a competitive environment where many firms are trying to find their next “winner.” Insight's approach is unique, and our Analysts are our front line in interacting with and informing entrepreneurs about the Insight difference. Our analysts are involved in the all stages of the deal process.

- Job #1--Find Great Companies - Finding great companies may sound easy…it isn't. You will need to first locate them, ascertain their growth prospects and momentum, and learn about their markets. You will develop investment theses and, over time, develop deal judgement. It will be critical for you to be able to cultivate strong relationships with entrepreneurs and demonstrate the value that Insight provides these companies before, during, and after the fund raising process.

- Get involved with deals - When a deal goes live, you will be exposed to the evaluation process, negotiations, and due diligence. You may also have a role in performing industry and market research, financial modeling, and customer analytics.

- Developing investment memos - All of the work up to this point comes together in an investment memo which lays out both the risks and merits of a transaction. Here you will learn to present both the qualitative and quantitative analysis of a deal.

- Find great M&A targets - Many of our growth and PE investments rely upon successful acquisitions to bolster top line growth. You will learn how to identify synergistic M&A targets, how these deals might be structured, and how the post-acquisition company might be organized
