About Alpify

Alpify is an app created in 2012 to complement the functions of the 112 Emergency Centres, helping to locate people in emergency situations. The app currently has more than 1.5 million registered users and has become the most widely used device in emergency situations.

Alpify has already received a small round of €400,000 in 2014 led by Caixa Capital Riks and in which several business angels participated.

Alpify is currently present in Spain and Andorra. The new round will facilitate entry into Latin America.

Expanding its business model

As Alpify is already a leader in its sector in Spain, it has set out to enter new market segments. Currently, it has already included new functions designed for the most vulnerable groups in the family: children and the elderly. In addition, it has set up an innovation centre for urban safety that is experimenting with new functionalities to improve safety in cities.

The new round will help them to advance in the fields of personal and family security. In the words of Alpify's CEO, "In the personal and family security sector there is a lot of ground to cover and we don't want to miss out on the opportunity to lead this market".

Investment rounds in Spanish geolocation apps

Although the geolocation market in Spain is still in its infancy, we have already detected several companies in the sector that have made investment rounds.

In September 2016, Wabe for example closed a €900,000 round. Wave  is a free app that facilitates the process of meeting friends face-to-face through a private geolocation service.

Another young company Badi App, Badi App is the first mobile app that allows users to discover rooms near them or rent out unused ones.

Technology Data Analytics
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?

We have developed training programs in an innovative set-up which guarantees our teams the acquisition of technical competences both in the field of corporate finance and in the field of psychology, that is much needed when it comes to negotiation processes.
