downloadSegún cincodías, desde mayo del 2013, las startups tecnológicas españolas han levantado más de 50MM€ en cerca de 20 operaciones de entrada de capital. El ecommerce ha destacado como actividad más favorecida.

Privalia: 25 MM€ para internacionalizar una empresa que factura más de 400MM€.

La operación más potente ha sido la de Privalia, la compañía de ecommerce fundada por Lucas Carné y José Manuel Villanueva, que a mediados de mayo cerró una ronda de inversión de 25 millones, por la que la sociedad belga Sofina (hólding de la multimillonaria familia Böel con participaciones en Gaz de France o Danone) pasó a ser accionista de la firma. Una entrada de capital que, sin duda, da un nuevo empuje a la empresa, que en 2012 creció un 32% tras cerrar el ejercicio con una facturación de 422 millones de euros.

"La Financiación de las startups se ha visto favorablemente impulsada por grandes grupos como Telefónica, apoyando tanto las fases semilla con su incubadora Wayra como las fases de expansión con los fondos cogestionados por Amérigo." comenta Diego Gutierrez experto en financiación de pymes en ABRA INVEST. "Además se han realizado nuevos levantamiento de fondos como Kibo Ventures, Active Venture, Nauta Capital, Bullet o Seaya Ventures que han permitido impulsar inversiones más potentes en start-ups por encima de los 3MM€ que hasta ahora era un rango de inversión casi inalcanzable" analiza Diego Gutierrez.
Otros movimientos destacados también se han producido en torno a start-ups ligadas al comercio electrónico.

Así, Bonsai, Attitude y Atresmedia (controlada por el Grupo Planeta) acaban de invertir nueve millones (la última de ellas vía publicidad) en El armario de la tele, una firma capitaneada por Laura Herrera que vende ropa de los programas de televisión por internet, y que al igual que Privalia apuestan por una expansión internacional.
De la misma manera, We Are Knitters, que comercializa kits para que cada uno teja sus propias prendas de lana, recibió una inversión de 150.000 euros de Cabiedes & Partners y de los business angels François Derbaix, fundador de Toprural.com, y Yago Arbeloa, presidente de la Asociación de Inversores y Emprendedores de Internet.

Y la empresa aragonesa Funidelia, dedicada a la venta online de disfraces y decoración festiva, cerró una ronda de financiación de 300.000 euros liderada por el club de inversión Big Sur Ventures-Necotium y en la que también participó Cabiedes & Partners.

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?
