This led us to the only natural choice – Jeff Horing and Insight Partners. This is so much more than just capital – it’s a round for our customers, all the tinkerers, the people that never accepted “no” for an answer, the small businesses that said “we shall prevail” and the entrepreneurs who never blinked for a second.”
