Según CBinsights, en el último año, casi $ 752 millones se han invertido en empresas de IoT habiendo subido cerca de un 28% respecto al mismo periodo del año anterior. Aunque el crecimiento de la financiación interanual se redujo en casi 46%, es importante señalar que la mayoría de los $ 810M invertido en 1T'12 fue debido a la mega  operación en Vivint (automatización del hogar y empresa de vigilancia de la seguridad), ahora propiedad del Grupo Blackstone. Si quitamos el efecto de este mega proyecto, la financiación de este segmento también creció un 20,7%. La actividad segú número de operaciones se disparó en Q4'12 a 41 ofertas de 21 en Q3'12  debido en gran parte a un aumento en las inversiones en fase semilla.

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.
