Con $ 1.1B en Tech Ed de financiación de capital riesgo en 2012, hemos querido echar un vistazo más de cerca a cuál de las empresas educativas más grandes, tanto cotizadas como privadas, han sido más activas, en la adquisición y la inversión en empresas privadas y emergentes en Ed Tech .

Basado en la actividad de  M & A y en los datos financieros desde el año 2010, la editorial con sede en Londres, Pearson encabeza la lista con 15 adquisiciones o inversiones en empresas Ed Tech. Es seguido por Providence Equity Partners de propiedad del proveedor de  software educativo Blackboard. El top 3 se completa con el Grupo Macmillan que adquiere e invierte en empresas Ed Tech a través de dos brazos separados - Macmillan New Ventures y Macmillan Education Digital.

También los fondos de private equity están presentes en el sector

"Además de estas grandes corporaciones, también están presentes en el sector otros fondos privados de capital riesgo. Estos suelen actuar en fases más tempranas de desarrollo y normalmente buscan el retorno de su inversión mediante la venta de la compañía participada a una de sestas grandes corporaciones" comenta Diego Gutierrez de la empresa especializada en financiación alternativa ABRA INVEST. "Un ejemplo de ello es el fondo Rethink education, fundada a principios del 2012 y que ya ha realizado inversiones en empresas como Hapara, EverFi y Smarterer" puntualiza Diego Gutierrez.

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?
