"When I look back at the business, the numbers change, a lot of the tactics change, and the products and services change — and the solutions change. But for me, it’s really about the culture and the people."
Our story began with a college business plan.
Many great entrepreneurial tales start with two innovators inspired by an initial idea. In 1988, Tim and Eric Crown began their story in this fashion. With a business plan that took root in a college assignment and a cash advance from a credit card, they established Hard Drives International — the company that would become Insight.
