Seaya Ventures, a new €40 million technology fund.

The objective of this new investment fund is to invest in the growth and expansion stages of Spanish startups already in operation. Seaya Ventures is an initiative that was created with the aim of solving the financing problems of our technological panorama, with the aim of 40 million to invest in Spanish startups and companies. Seaya seeks to transform early and growth stage companies into industry leaders. They look for innovative companies that require growth, and that can create lasting value.

Priority sectors:

Computing & Storage Infrastructure
Consumer & Internet Media
Consumer & Mobile Media
Enterprise and Consumer software and services
Payment: Internet & Mobile

Consolidated team:

This new fund has five members and is led by Beatriz GonzálezMichael Kleindl (ex-AdLINK Internet Media AG or BuyVip) and Michael Kleindl (ex-AdLINK Internet Media AG or BuyVip).

Total capital and size of investment:

Although it does not yet have any companies in its portfolio, and is in the process of searching and analysing them, the money raised (€40 million) and the stature of its founding team and advisory board make Seaya a fund on a par with Caixa Capital Risc and Nautal Capital, the two most powerful firms in Spain. It will do so from Madridunlike the two previous funds that operate from Barcelona. The new fund is targeting transactions of between €5 million and €10 million.

This seems a high range for Spanish venture capital when the average deal size is below €500,000. Possibly the fund will have to focus on operations of companies with a higher degree of consolidation.

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.
