venture capitalEn los últimos años se han creado varias empresas de procesamiento de lenguaje natural  que presentan  ventajas para el día a día de la empresa. El venture capital y las grandes corporaciones han querido aprovechar esta oportunidad, como Inversur Capital acaba de invertir en Inbenta.

 

 

Operaciones en el sector de procesamiento de lenguaje artificial

Adapx es una de las primeras empresas dedicadas a este sector, fundada en 1999 esta empresa, que se dedica a la obtención de información a través de la voz,  ha recibido 5 financing rounds. La última de ellas en Abril de 2013, en la que la firma consiguió $3M por parte de OVP Venture Partners Paladin Capital Group Pelion Venture Partners y Northwest Technology Ventures.

Las grandes empresas tecnológicas tampoco se quieren quedar atrás e invierten en lenguaje natural, como es el caso de Yahoo, que en Febrero de 2013 compró SkyPhrase, startup  especializada en el desarrollo de algoritmos para el procesamiento del lenguaje natural.

Operaciones en España

En España también están apareciendo numerosas startups en este campo que están siendo muy bien recibidas por los inversores.

Esta misma semana, Inbenta especializada en tecnología de procesamiento del lenguaje natural, ha cerrado  su primera ronda de financiación de  $2M de dólares, liderada por InverSur Capital.

“Inbenta fue fundada en 2005, pero en 2012 una ayuda recibida del CDTI fue la clave para que se perfeccionara su tecnología y diera el salto a otros países: Francia, Brasil y en Estados Unidos (en Silicon Valley)”comenta Diego Gutiérrez experto en finanzas alternativas del grupo Abra Invest.

Otra startup que ha recibido financiación de business angels es Sherpa Beta 3.0,  aplicación móvil fundada por Xabier Uribe-Etxebarria, que funciona como un asistente personal y le dirá todo lo que necesita de forma fácil y rápida.

Por otro lado, la Española Indysis fue comprada por Intel en 2013 por una cifra aproximada de M20€. Indisys fue fundada en Sevilla en 2005 y se dedica a desarrollar agentes inteligentes que permiten mantener conversaciones en múltiples idiomas, dispositivos y plataformas.

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.

Hence, we extend best practices identified internally in an efficient and rapid manner among our members.
