‘Global Leader’ Ambitions For Market Research Firm The Insights Family As It Wins BGF Investment

Family market research firm The Insights Family has secured a £5.6m investment led by BGF as it bids to become a “global leader” in its field.

BGF has invested £5 million in the Manchester business, with additional participation from DSW Ventures, – the venture capital arm of Dow Schofield Watts.

Nick Richardson, founder of The Insights Family, said: “We have achieved a lot in a relatively short period but having the support of BGF will enable us to significantly accelerate all parts of our business and to firmly establish ourselves as the global leader in the next generation of market intelligence on the next generation of consumers.Having the backing of an experienced investor such as BGF, is an exciting validation of our commitment to reaching this goal.”

Our impressive customer portfolio is continually expanding, and with the additional strategic and financial support from BGF, we’re poised to amplify our growth even further in 2024.”

Rhys Davenport, BGF investor, said: “The Insights Family has emerged as a global authority in market intelligence for kids, teens, parents, and families. We are thrilled to support another outstanding North West business and look forward to collaborating with the team on this next phase of growth.”
