InsightStudios: A New Kind Of Incubator

InsightStudios is a startup studio. A startup studio is similar to a movie studio like Marvel Studios, but instead of creating movies, we create startup technology companies. InsightStudios was founded by Dave Linhardt as a way to expand from a serial entrepreneur to a parallel entrepreneur. Dave has assembled a team of experienced entrepreneurs to create more startups and to mentor aspiring entrepreneurs.
