Inveready to launch new venture debt fund for tech startups

Venture debt is an innovative investment model that combines debt and equity. Inveready already had a vehicle with these characteristics, Inveready venture Finance I. This type of vehicle is widely used by technology startups in other countries such as the US, the UK and Israel, and has allowed companies such as Facebook to grow, but it is not yet widespread in Spain.

Inveready in 2012 was the pioneer of this investment model in our country and in 2016 it is once again committed to it. This model allows companies to obtain financing that entails significantly less dilution than if it were financed exclusively with capital. In addition, the political rights remain unchanged, which is a delicate aspect of the entry of new partners.

Carlos Conti, CEO of the SCR within Inveready's management company, comments that "... the SCR is the best way to achieve this.Technology-based companies need, once the first rounds of investment have been made and once they have proven their business model and reached a critical mass of relevant turnover, a financing alternative that does not only include capital".

Among the latest operations carried out by the Inveready venture finance I fund, we find the Financial injection in February 2016 of €600,000 for AB Biotics, a Catalan biotech company listed on the Alternative Equity Market (MAB).

Inveready Venture Finance II has a target of raising investment commitments of €20M to be invested in 20-30 companies. The average deal size will be between €300,000 and €2M.

Last operations carried out by Inveready : Tviso and Nanusens

Inveready Technology Investment Group (www.inveready.com) is the first Spanish Investment Group focused on early stage innovative companies with financial needs between €0.5M and €4M. Inveready has offices in Barcelona, Madrid and San Francisco, which is of great help for companies to address the internationalisation of their solutions.

This week we have also learned that Inveready has invested in Tviso, a tool that offers all audiovisual content with broadcasting rights in Spain. Cabiedes & Partners and Evolvia also participated in the €1.5M round.

End of August, Nanusens closed a €1.3M investment round, which was led by Caixa Capital Risc and Inveready.

Nanusens is dedicated to the development of microelectronics devices for mobility, automotive, wearable and connected device applications and the round will be used to finalise testing of a new high-performance sensor and to prepare the company for production.

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.
