due diligence

what we like

  • 🧠 learning for today: Insightful understands the way users want to learn: through short, mobile videos
  • πŸ“ˆ creators: the creator economy is expanding across industries and platforms, and Insightful provides a dedicated place for educators and experts to monetize their insights
  • πŸ”€ algorithm: by providing users with videos that cater to their interests, Insightful will keep users on the platform for hours

potential risks

  • 🀼 competition: there’s an overwhelming amount of educational content across social platforms, so Insightful must work to keep itself differentiated
    • this is crucial if they plan to charge users down the line
  • πŸŽ₯ reliant on creators: Insightful’s content is as good as their creators; could creating videos in-house fill any subject gaps?
  • 🚨 regulating content: as the platform scales, will Insightful continue to require creators to apply, and if so, how will this effect growth?
