It seems that biotechnology is finding investors in our country. A few weeks ago we told you that Inveready had invested in Cuantum and Ab-biotics, this week we learned that Oncostellae, which received a €1M round is looking for funding, and Caixa Capital Risk has led a €2.2M round in Inbiomotion.

la Caixa's investment in Inbiomotion


La Caixa through Caixa Innvierte BioMed IIhas led a €2.2M round in Inbiomotion, a spin-off of the Barcelona Biomedical Research Institute that develops diagnostic tests to predict the risk of cancer patients suffering from bone metastasis.

Also participating in the round were Ysios Capitalthe leading Spanish investment manager in the biotechnology sector, through its Ysios BioFund I, and the Vila Casas Foundation, which were already shareholders of the company.

This round will complete the clinical validation and make Inbiomotion's first product available to patients.

Inbiomotion's product, Osteomet, has already been validated in more than 1,300 patient samples from independent, multi-country cohorts and the company's primary goal is to complete its clinical and regulatory development within the next 2 years.

La Caixa is committed to biotechnology and creates Caixa Innvierte Start.

It is also in the news that last December the Caixa registered a new fund for technology SMEs with the CNMV, mainly for companies in the health and biotechnology sectors, although other sectors are not ruled out.

 La Caixa will focus on Spanish start-ups (although it does not rule out the "exceptional" possibility of making purchases in other geographies as long as they do not consume 20% of the total resources raised by the fund) and with an outstanding potential for innovation and growth.

These general guidelines are quite favourable for the new fund to receive the injection of the government's fund of funds articulated through the ICO, Fond-ICO Global -whose sixth call remains open until 29 March. In fact, in the management regulations that Caixa Innvierte Start has submitted to the CNMV, there is a specific article (article 17) that regulates the intervention of public participants.

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?
