Inveniam’s specialized advisory services are designed to accompany institutions, investors, start-ups and corporations throughout the deal life cycle
We provide the full arsenal of advisory services to help our clients on their corporate growth strategies including: strategic design and implementation, financing structuring and capital raising, investment valuation, M&A, or risk management design. In the realm of Mergers & Acquisitions, we assist during the whole process ̶ from opportunity identification, screening and selection of the best fitting target companies, to the closing of the deal. We initiate the conversations with the target company, design the transaction, provide expert advice during the valuation, and assist throughout the negotiation process towards a successful deal completion.
Inveniam supports an investment club focusing on early-stage Life Sciences and Sustainability technology-based companies. Inveniam proposes and validates companies combining an attractive market opportunity at the right time, a clear go-to-market strategy, an “unfair” competitive advantage, and an outstanding and committed team.
The investment club is composed of an exclusive group of seasoned investors that invest expecting very high returns, while understanding the risks of early-stage investment. Club members can decide on a case by case basis whether to invest or not in the opportunity.
Leveraging an outstanding deal flow of technology-based companies in Spain and Israel, Inveniam filters, analyzes and selects highly profitable and solid ventures. It then works with the selected companies on a strategy, business development or financing advisory project to gain a deep understanding of both the company and its industry. Once the venture’s potential and its risks are clear, Inveniam presents a short list of companies to the Fund’s partners, backed with a thorough analysis and an equity story.
Finally, the club negotiates valuation and entry terms with its selected startups. At Inveniam we care both about the startup’s profit-making and the investor’s rate of profit, and we put the money where our mouth is by co-investing with the club’s partners.
On the buyer’s side, we work with corporations and investors interested in carefully screened technology opportunities, both in the IP and product space. Our corporate services for buyers follow a carefully designed process, from mapping of the buyer´s technology needs, through structured scouting cycles using international and specialized sources, to pre-evaluation of filtered technologies, and contact follow-up.
For those companies interested in creating shareholder value through innovation strategies, we assist them by presenting companies and products which can leverage their own production or distribution channels’ capacity. Our technology watch and scouting services allow companies to be updated on the state of the art in key business areas. Our final goal is to improve our clients’ competitive position and reduce their business risk exposure.
Drawing on our team’s outstanding expertise in strategic consulting and management, as well as the extensive experience in innovation strategy of our collaborator company LTC, Inveniam provides professional advice to institutions and corporations willing to take their organizations on a path of excellence and results.
Technology Transfer is a process by which a technology – usually at an early stage but with a certain proof of concept and underlying intellectual property assets – is transferred from the inventor or supporting institution to a business entity capable of developing the technology into products. The transfer is usually performed by granting a license to use the technology within certain terms and conditions, but it can include the sale of the underlying intellectual property assets.
Inveniam’s team has an outstanding experience and track record in international technology transfer deals. At Inveniam we help our clients assess specific technologies based on their potential applications, technology readiness stage, intellectual property strength, market potential, value proposition, and likelihood of success in its commercialization.
We accompany our clients throughout the whole process with a go-to-market approach, from the development of an appropriate commercialization strategy, preparation of marketing materials, identification and contact of potential parties, presentation of the technology and up to the structuring of the deal, negotiation and finalization of any transfer agreements.
