INVERSORESNumerous companies have taken advantage of the concern for health and wellbeing and the increased use of new technologies to create innovative companies in this field. Investors have not been left behind and are betting heavily on the sector. Proof of this is that the number of Series A and B rounds in the health sector has increased by 179% from 2010 to 2013, from 24 deals in 2011 to 67 in 2013.

Rondas en empresas dedicadas a información médica online.

El 30% de las operaciones realizadas en el sector salud en el año 2013 y primer trimestre 2014 han sido rondas en empresas destinadas a proporcionar servicios o información médica online. Podríamos clasificar estas empresas en  3 grandes grupos, plataformas para encontrar especialistas médicos o seguros  online,  que se adapten a las necesidades de los clientes, como puede ser BetterDoctor, empresa Americana que recibió una ronda de $2.6M en 2013  en la que participaron  Jeff Clavier, 500 Startups, Burrill & Co.

“En España también se ha realizado operaciones en este ámbito, como la ronda de financiación de 500.000 € obtenida por la Catalana  Medprivé, comercializadora de productos sanitarios por internet  de la mano de Cabiedes & Partners” afirma Diego Gutierrez experto en financiación alternativa del grupo Abra Invest.

El segundo grupo es el de “Software para facilitar el seguimiento o la rehabilitación del paciente”, como HealthTap que recaudó   $ 24M  en su segunda ronda de financiación realizada en Mayo del 2013.

Y el tercer grupo, el de “Comunidades online para obtener información médica”, como Treato, que coge toda la información de los blog y los foros y presenta al paciente un resumen detallado. Treato, recibió una ronda de €14,5M de la mano de  Leaf Venture PartnersReed Elsevier Ventures OrbiMed Advisors .

Rondas en Empresas tecnológicas dedicadas a la salud, y el bienestar

La preocupación por llevar una vida saludable también ha hecho crecer considerablemente el número de operaciones en el sector salud. Del total de las 94 operaciones realizadas en el  sector salud, el 24% son operaciones en empresas tecnológicas que ofrecen servicios para llevar una vida saludable.

Dentro de este grupo se encuentran plataformas que  ayudan a los clientes  a estar en forma incentivando el  deporte, o proponiendo dietas personalizadas y recetas saludables. Como la empresa Pact Fitness, comunidad online, en la que los miembros hacen un pacto de cuantos días a la semana van a hacer deporte, y si alguno no lo cumple tiene que pagar una cantidad  a los demás miembros que sí que han hecho deporte. Pact Fitness recibió el pasado año una ronda de $1.5M en la que participaron Khosla Ventures y Max Levchin.

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.
