Insight Venture Partners Closes New Co-investment Fund Totaling $510 Million to Invest Alongside Insight Venture Partners VIII

NEW YORK, May 19, 2014-- Today, Insight Venture Partners announced the closing of Insight Venture Partners Coinvestment Fund III, a $510 million private equity fund, established to invest alongside Insight Venture Partners VIII, which closed at $2.57 billion in May 2013. Like its predecessor funds, this fund will invest in global software, internet, and data-services businesses.

"We see tremendous market opportunity to invest in high growth technology companies and this new fund will enable us to invest in our core expansion-stage market, as well as larger growing companies," said Jeff Horing, co-founder and managing director at Insight Venture Partners. "We appreciate that our investors have further committed to our investment strategy through the new co-investment fund.

Commitments from existing investors contributed a majority of the capital to the new co-investment fund. The total capital committed to Insight since inception in 1995 is now more than $8 billion.

As with prior funds, Insight will continue to seek transaction opportunities worldwide with an emphasis on helping growth stage companies achieve long-term profitable growth. Fund VIII is able to write equity checks of $15 million and higher; in conjunction with Coinvestment Fund III, Insight will have the flexibility to invest more than $500 million of equity per transaction.
