Las  plataformas de contratación de freelancers anglosajonas, Elance y oDesk recientemente fusionadas, han recibido más de $130M de inversión del venture capital. El líder en habla hispana Nubelo lleva captados $1,7M hasta la fecha.

Elance y oDesk: los líderes anglosajones se fusionan

Generando bastante controversia entre sus usuarios, las dos plataformas líderes en el sector de la contratación online de freelance, han anunciado recientemente su fusión. Elance ha recibido un total de $94M de fundingoDesk $44M. "La mayoría de las posiciones en estas plataformas están orientadas a profesionales de IT donde la reaalización del trabajo en remoto es más habitual y los períodos de los trabajos más cortos. Está por ver si este modelo se puede extender a otros sectores como el cleantech, biotech, etc." analiza Diego Gutierrez de Abra Invest.

Nubelo, líder en habla hispana, adquiere la brasileña prolancer

En el mes de noviembre del 2013 se anunció una ronda de financiación por €1M en Nubelo by FinavesCaixa Capital Risk y Nazca Capital que se unían a los 200k aportados por Cabiedes en el 2012. Parte de la inversión se ha dedicado a la adquisición del competidor brasileño Prolancer que cuenta con más de 50.000 usuarios registrados. Nubelo ha comunicado su objetivo de abrir durante el 2014 en EEUU para conectar la demanda de profesionales de habla hispana de empresas del país originada por el aumento de consumidores en dicha lengua.

Voice, Lamda y otras plataformas especializadas

En todos los sectores, hay empresas que saben ver los nichos que no cubren los líderes en volumen. Es el caso de Lamda que quiere cubrir la insatisfacción de los profesionales altamente cualificados que reciben un montón de ofertas a bajo precio en los portales grandes lo que les supone una pérdida de tiempo altísima y una vanalización de su calificación. Lamda solo admite ofertas de trabajos con un mínimo de ingreso de 100$/hora. Otro ejemplo es Voice que está especializada en profesionales de la voz.

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.
