Parchment: para hacer valer tus credenciales educativas

Durante este mismo mes de enero del 2014, Parchment ha recibido $35M por parte de
The Raine GroupGSV Capital, Deborah Quazzo, Novak Biddle Venture PartnersInternet Capital Group y Salmon River Capital, acumulando un total de $54M desde su primera ronda en el 2011.

Más allá de proporcionar una operativa de bajo coste y eficaz en las transcripciones electrónicas, Parchment trabaja con los estudiantes y las instituciones de todo el mundo a poner en valor los datos sobre  las credenciales educativas - ayuda a las personas a recoger, promover y compartir sus credenciales de educación de forma sencilla y segura.

El bigdata para educación todavía con mucho recorrido

A pesar del número de empresas que han recibido financiación para aplicar el bigdata al sector de la educación, las perspectivas son muy halagüeñas. “Un signo de estas buenas perspectivas es que el 33% de las operaciones mencionadas se han producido en fases tempranas y en operaciones de menos de $1M. Cabe esperar que los próximos años estas empresas reciban nuevas rondas de financiación si son capaces de demostrar una buena aproximación al mercado” analiza Diego Gutierrez de Abra Invest.

Un ejemplo de ello es icreate que recibió una primera ronda en febrero 2013. Icreate trata de aprovechar la tecnología y el potencial creativo de los estudiantes ya existentes a través de herramientas intuitivas y de bajo coste que aumentan la retención y la comprensión conceptual en todas las áreas de contenido

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.
