Therefore, IntelFin supports strategic decision-making to senior management by resolving questions such as:

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?
