The use of new technologies in the tourism sector has many advantages when it comes to saving costs and reaching end customers. In recent years, several companies have been created in the sector that have been able to grow thanks to the support of investors who have seen an opportunity in the sector, and it is expected that this trend will continue to grow in the coming years.

financing rounds

En lo que llevamos de año se han realizado 90 rondas en empresas de tecnologías del sector turístico por un importe de $1084M, importe que ya supera el $1022 M conseguidos el año pasado en 114 rondas.

Esto es debido a que este año se han cerrado operaciones venture por un importe bastante elevado en empresas grandes, que ya habían recibido antes financiación como Airbnb, web de alquiler de habitaciones por todo el mundo, que cerró una ronda de $475M y la China Tujia que cerró una ronda de $100M.

“Dentro del sector, todavía en crecimiento, ya va habiendo empresas que están cogiendo el liderazgo y para adelantarse a la competencia captan elevados importes de inversión para acelerar su crecimiento” comenta Diego Gutierrez de Abra Invest.

Grandes firmas han apostado fuerte por el sector, por ejemplo Sequoia capital cuyo modelo de inversión es la inversión de pequeñas cantidades en muchas empresas, en 2013 invirtió una cantidad bastante más elevada que la media de sus inversiones en Skyscanner, la segunda mayor compañía de búsquedas de vuelos del mundo.

Acquisitions en el sector

Otra de las formas que están usando las empresas del sector para crecer y abrirse a nuevos mercados son las adquisiciones. En este año 2014 ya se han realizado 28 operaciones, cifra que supera las 25 realizadas en todo el año 2013.

Hay varias grandes empresas Americanas que han realizado un gran número de adquisiciones en el sector como Tripadvisor y Homeway, que han realizado 19 compras cada uno.

Sector tecnológico aplicado al turismo en España

En los últimos años también han surgido en España empresas orientadas a las tecnologías de la información en el sector turístico y varias de ellas han recibido rondas de financiación como Minubee, Trip4real y Byhours.

Además desde el gobierno se está fomentando este tipo de empresas con ayudas como la de Emprendetur, enfocado a financiar proyectos de I+D relacionados con innovación tecnológica y turismo con el objetivo de apoyar la investigación y desarrollo aplicado a productos del sector turístico. La convocatoria de programa que ha contado con bastante éxito en años anteriores se espera que se abra el próximo mes de Noviembre y que este abierto por un plazo de 2 meses.

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?
