    Campus Recruiting Manager at Insight Partners

  • Location: New York, NY, USA | Position: Intern

    nsight Partners has summer opportunities for undergrads or 5-year masters students that are graduating between December 2024 – June 2025 to join Insight Partners as a Summer Investment Analyst starting in late May 2024.

    Our Summer Investment Analyst program focuses on developing professionals in the venture and PE investing business. You will learn how to best speak to entrepreneurs, learn 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 our interns. The life blood of our organization is sourcing, and you will be immediately thrust into the chaotic world of venture-funded businesses. You will be speaking with entrepreneurs every day, learning from them, questioning them, and ultimately recommending if their business is worth considering for investment. 

    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 first need to 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 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 or 5-year masters students, graduating between December 2024 - June 2025.

    • All undergraduate fields of study are welcome.
