About Innterconecta

The CDTI (Centro para el Desarrollo Tccnológico Industrial) as manager of ERDF (European Regional Development Funds) from the 2007 - 2013 round, designed a regional instrument to promote the generation of innovative capacities in less developed regions through the financing of experimental development projects carried out through business consortia: FEDER Innterconecta.

Through this instrument, the CDTI has sought to promote cooperation at regional level, the implementation of projects geared to the needs of the regions and the generation of innovative capacities that promote greater territorial cohesion.

The ERDF Innterconecta calls are co-financed by the ERDF through the different Operational Programmes in which the CDTI has been an Intermediate Body. In the 2014 - 2020 round, the calls will be co-funded through the Pluri-Regional Operational Programme for Smart Growth.

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?
