El Fondo Europeo de Inversiones (FEI) y AXIS, sociedad de capital riesgo del Instituto de Crédito Oficial (ICO), han presentado hoy el EAF-Fondo Isabel La Católica, que pone a disposición de business angels 20 millones de euros para invertir en empresas de nueva creación.

¿En qué empresas se puede invertir?

El Fondo tiene como objetivo apoyar a PyMEs innovadoras. Las inversiones serán generalistas en
cuanto al sector y a la fase de desarrollo.
Las coinversiones del Fondo estarán focalizadas en las nuevas inversiones realizadas por los Business Angels.
En casos excepcionales, se podría hacer inversiones de seguimiento (“follow-ons”) en empresas ya existentes en
sus carteras.

¿Cómo funciona?

El Fondo Isabel La Católica – EAF Spain crea relaciones contractuales con los Business Angels a través de acuerdos marco de coinversión (“CFA”, o Co-Investment Framework Agreements). De esta forma, una cantidad de capital predefinida se pone a disposición de los Business Angels para realizar coinversiones sin participar en la toma de decisiones.
Para facilitar y agilizar el proceso los CFAs siguen formatos estándares, si bien dejan margen para ser adaptados a los requisitos específicos de cada Business Angel. Las adaptaciones pueden referirse a la duración del acuerdo marco, el enfoque sectorial, el número de inversiones, etc. Todas las decisiones de inversión serán tomadas por
los Business Angels, de modo que el Fondo Isabel La Católica – EAF Spain aporta una cantidad de capital
equivalente a la aportada por cada uno de ellos. Las cantidades acordadas en cada CFA pueden variar
entre Eur 250k y Eur 5m. El Fondo no paga comisión de gestión a los Business Angels pero asume su parte
proporcional de los gastos relacionados con la toma de inversiones.

for M&A
"Advanced data anlytics is a weapon". Intelfin is an artificial intelligence tool we use for investing and creating value in SMEs through competitive analytics and the enterprise environment.

IntelFin consists of a cognitive system, which, through the application of advanced analytical technologies, facilitates the automation of investment and financing decisions in the field of non-listed companies and especially SMEs in high-growth sectors.

The information related to these companies is characterized by their lack of transparency and heterogeneity; thus, it is necessary to develop an advanced analysis which is as much predictive as prescriptive and is developed in a natural language custom, suitable to obtain greater clarity and knowledge of the investment scope.

The IntelFin system focuses especially on analyzing the variables that define and influence the competitive environment of a sector and the positioning of a company, analyzing their influence on future value creation. Therefore, IntelFin supports strategic decision-making to senior management by resolving questions such as:

¿What are my competitors' priorities, strategies and expansion plans? Who's my competition? Which competitor is most likely to grow at a higher rate?
Which areas of activity/business models will receive the most investment? Which sectors are most attractive to investors?
Which companies are going to experience the most growth in the near future? Which companies are most likely to receive investment or be acquired?
