Providing content and services to the world’s most successful technology companies

TechInsights is widely recognised as the world’s leading provider of advanced technology analysis and intellectual property services, providing content and services to the world’s most successful technology companies.

Its teardown analysis unlocks the inner workings and secrets of innovative technologies that underpin many of today’s most exciting technologies, from AI to IoT, 5G and the metaverse.

By revealing the innovation others cannot inside the broadest range of advanced technology products, TechInsights enables business leaders to make the best technology investment decisions and prove patent value with fact-based information.

Our investment

Introduced by an Oakley network relationship, Fund III acquired a majority stake in May 2017. Under Oakley’s ownership, TechInsights has transitioned its business model from one-off projects to a subscription-based revenue model, and today 65% of revenues are recurring.

In March 2022, Fund III sold its stake in TechInsights and as part of the transaction, Fund IV acquired a majority stake in the business, alongside management and CVC Growth Funds, in order to benefit from the strong future growth potential of the business.

Oakley's support and experience has been central to the significant growth of our subscription and syndicated data products.

Market dynamics

TechInsights benefits from high barriers to entry due to its patented processes, proprietary equipment, specialised workforce and unique database. The business is profiting from strong demand for its information services as surging demand for powerful computer chips together with supply chain complexity encourages more companies to invest in R&D to develop and improve their own semi conductors.

Our origination network helps us source investments others cannot. Often, we are the first institutional investor in our portfolio companies.
