A Growth Stage Venture Firm Opportunity
Insight Partners has opportunities for undergrads that are
graduating between December 2022 - June 2023 to join Insight
Partners as a Full Time Investment Analyst starting in September
Our Investment Analyst program focuses on developing professionals
in the venture and PE investing business. You will learn 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 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 a 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 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
- 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 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.
- Undergraduates, graduating between December 2022 - June 2023.
- All undergraduate fields of study are welcome.
**Is Insight right for you?**
- Team matters to us - Every Analyst will be placed on an
investment team with its own personality and investment
preferences. You will work as an integrated member learning about
the type of companies that make sense for your team and for
Insight. Your contribution to your team will be an important
criterion in evaluating your success.
- The phone is our weapon - If you think that calling entrepreneurs
on the phone to sell them on Insight is glorified telemarketing,
then Insight probably is not the right place for you. We believe
that our Analysts and their outreach is our competitive advantage.
Learning how to speak to entrepreneurs, sell them on our
organization, and ultimately convince them to work with us is a
skill set that will serve you well throughout your entire
career---regardless of what you ultimately do! And when you are
invited to a meeting you have a real value and contribution based
on your existing relationship with the entrepreneur.
- We expect excellence - Insight has a tradition of hiring the best
and the brightest. You will be pushed hard in a competitive
environment to show that you can learn rapidly and that your
thinking can evolve. The bar is high, but if you can succeed, you
will be rewarded for your contribution.
- Learn by doing - We will train you and give you what you need to
start your journey. But, ultimately you need to be comfortable
working independently and be self-motivated. Every interaction
internally and externally is an opportunity for you to learn.
Analysts appreciate an environment where they are not micro-managed
and can chart their own path to success.
- Do you love entrepreneurs? If you want to be an entrepreneur,
start your own business. But, if you want to figure out what makes
a successful business and how to help entrepreneurs win, then
Insight could be right for you. Our goal is to find great
businesses with great talent and then partner with them to help
- Working hard is just the beginning - We work hard at Insight.
Long hours and demanding work is the norm. But, we also think you
should be able to have fun with the people you work with on a daily
basis. There is a regular schedule of social events and outings
throughout the year, where you will begin to appreciate that it is
the people that make Insight so special.
- We like winning and people who want to win, but--- Insight likes
to win and that is integral to our culture. We also want
competitive people who simply can't stand losing. But, we also have
a reputation as an ethical company that can be trusted. We expect
no less from everyone who works with us. We want great people---no
