#TUGG10: A Look Back at 2011 with InsightSquared


Great Culture from Day One

In 2011 the TUGG team tried something new and opted for a Spring Fling instead of a traditional Wine Party. Over 200 friends and colleagues from the New England venture capital and entrepreneurial community came out to party and cast their votes, helping TUGG award grants to three very deserving non-profits.

That same year we also launched our first annual Tech Gives Back tech day of service. Boston's leading innovating companies had teams volunteering at a dozen non-profits in and around Boston - with a total 500 volunteers participating. Following this day of citizenship in the tech community, TUGG held a smashing after party at Citi Performing Arts Center. The day of service was such a hit that it became TUGG’s second signature event after the Wine Party.

One of the 40 companies to participate in first ever Tech Gives Back was InsightSquared and they’ve been involved with TUGG ever since.

For tech companies that need to grow fast and also efficiently, InsightSquared is a sales performance analytics solution that quickly delivers pre-built reports on every major sales metric. The company is known for its awesome company culture and commitment to the community, which we can most definitely attest to!

"Creating a great culture was part of the mission from day one. It was not accidental, but a very intentional component that influences every decision that we make. All three of us, as founders, brought the best elements from our past companies to InsightSquared" - Fred Shilmover, CEO, InsightSquared.
