We're growing 100% year-over-year without setting money on fire, built a product clients love, and have an amazing culture. Our team comes to work every day to build technology that helps corporations guess less and win more.

We aggregate and analyze massive amounts of data and use machine learning, algorithms, and data visualization to help corporations replace the three Gs (Google searches, gut instinct, and guys with MBAs) so they can answer massive strategic questions using probability, not punditry.

About the Program

During your internship at CB Insights, we’ll offer you a crash course in being a part of a startup/technology ecosystem. You will leverage your abilities and education to gain valuable hands on work experience, directly contribute to our business, and be ingrained in our culture.   

Our interns attend weekly lunch and learns, complete a final project (which they present to the company), and have lots of fun with things like an office gong, unicorns galore, and countless opportunities for team building.


It’s nice to be around happy, motivated, and positive people. It’s good for you, for the team, and for our customers. We look for this.

If you know the best way to do something, you’ll do good work. If you share that knowledge with others, you’ll become a leader.

We Value


We want you to find your comfort zone. And then seek to challenge the hell out of it, over and over. Complacency kills.

While there’s always a time and place to celebrate individual accomplishments, no single person is bigger than the team.

The [end of summer] project was definitely my favorite because we got to use so many different sources to get a feel for traction

Interning in Business Development with CB Insights made my summer enriching. I was able to gain hands-on experience prospecting potential leads, shadowing SDRs and AEs, and working on campaigns to re-engage past leads. I felt that my work not only contributed to my team's goals but was also recognized and appreciated, which was very rewarding as an intern in a company rapidly growing in size and reputation. I walked into CBI everyday excited to discover what challenges and growth opportunities the day would bring and to learn from my the humble, hungry, and helpful people around me.

When CBI says they look for happy, helpful, humble and hungry—they really mean it. The company culture could not be any stronger as everyone works their hardest and has fun while doing it. They will invest in your personal growth and give you opportunities to genuinely contribute to the growth of the company—this is something that is rare with internships.
