Insight Partners recently released a report highlighting the resilience of software ScaleUps and research around how software ScaleUps, graduates of startups, are catalyzing economic growth and fueling job creation amid widespread economic hardship.

The report surveyed 300 global software leaders on scaling and the factors enabling rapid business growth. Lonne Jaffe, Managing Director at Insight Partners, joins me on Tech Talks Daily to discuss the report findings.

I learn how the the majority (71%) of software leaders are highly focused on scaling, with most expecting to scale within 3–5 years – showing continued plans to prioritize growth iIn the near future. Elsewhere four in five (80%) Scaling Focused companies forecast that their investment in scaling activity will increase through 2021.

Most ScaleUps introduced concession strategies to retain customers (55%), and nearly half (48%) made premium product features free to all users during the pandemic.
