In conjunction with the $30 million round, Josh Fredberg, operating partner at Insight Partners, has joined Imubit's board of directors.
"Insight focuses on exceptional category creating companies that are scaling revolutionary technologies while transforming industries," Fredberg says. "Imubit has solved the extremely difficult business and technological challenges of how to optimize high-value refinery and chemical plant processes that were once considered too complex, and is now scaling up this new technology."
