venture capital isThere are talented managers out there, but without the right tools, there is a good chance that you will not be able to find the perfect candidate for a particular job.


New methods financed by 198 investors

That's why companies are finding so many different methods of connecting talented people with the perfect jobs (and retaining them), and venture capitalists have taken note. Over the past decade, 198 venture capitalists have funded US-based human capital services companies, according to the PitchBook Platform. Of the investors, 40 have between US $$ 50 million and US $$ 500 million in assets under management, and another 51 have between US $$ 1 billion and US $$ 10 billion. In addition, more than half of all investors have completed at least one deal in the industry in the last two years.

There is also movement in Spain

"Just this week, a round of financing was announced in Spain that has raised Jobandtalent 2.5MM€. It is dedicated to the processing of recruitment-oriented big data, using algorithms and functions as a virtual recruitment consultant or personal assistant, which identifies and recognises linguistic patterns within the structure and wording of both job offers and CVs," says Diego Gutierrez, an expert in alternative financing, at ABRA INVEST.

"Also last month we saw the investment in Traity by Latam Digital and other relevant investors such as 500startups or Bertelsmann. This startup offers a technology for measuring personality characteristics to create statistically significant profiles of users, and contribute to the creation of more efficient markets on the Internet, where curricular information can be complemented with other types of personal characteristics. These initiatives join others also born in Spain a few years ago, such as Catenon and SNtalent "says Diego Gutierrez.

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?
