Investors have seen European cloud computing companies as a source of opportunity. As a result, investment rounds are growing by 30% each year and since 2009 they have established themselves as one of the preferred sectors for investment.

 

Desde el año 2009 hasta el 2013 incluido se han registrado un total de 704 rondas de inversión principalmente lideradas por venture capital. Esta cifra ha supuesto un crecimiento interanual suprior al 30% y un volumen total invertido de 3.373M$.

Rondas e importe por año cloud

Gran Bretaña, con más de 1.715M$ de inversión y 198 inversiones registradas, lidera el ranking de países duplicando la inversión sobre el segundo (Irlanda), con 839M$ y 41 rounds. Irlanda, está recibiendo los elogios de recuperación siendo un referente para gurús como Mark Vidal.

Curiosamente, los dos fondos que lideran el ranking por número de inversiones, Enterprise Ireland y Hig-tech Gruenderfonds, tienen como partícipes a sus gobiernos, el irlandés y el alemán respectivamente.

Análisis: modelos que se consolidan y modelos que vienen

La cifra significativa de empresas que son adquiridas por corporaciones o que reciben grandes importes de inversión hace prever la consolidación de modelos de negocio. Por ejemplo los segmentos como el almacenamiento de datos, la seguridad, las aplicaciones de marketing y la gestión de contenidos.

Por otra parte, todavía el 60% de las rondas son de fase “angel” haciendo prever todavía la aparición de nuevos modelos. Por ejemplo los segmentos de herramientas de bigdata, modelos colaborativos, y otras categorías como el Back-end as a Service o el Data as a Service.

En España también se mantiene la tendencia

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?
Training Methodology
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.

We have a culture of continuous improvement of our processes, closely related to the use of information systems that allow the enhancement of internal communication between our teams, as well as external communication with our customers. Hence, we extend best practices identified internally in an efficient and rapid manner among our members.
