Our customers

Investment professionals and corporates use our software and services to make better investment and partnering decisions

We help corporate VC / VC / PE / M&A teams increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the technology scouting and dealflow management process.

Deal flow management and pro-active scouting is a chore. We know, we’ve been there. You want to focus your time and efforts on analyzing and pursuing opportunities in the market, not on data gathering and attending conferences. Our mission is to make your life easier, so that can you focus activities that truly add value.

We help corporate innovators and R&D to accelerate corporate innovation by moving beyond traditional means of corporate innovation.

We believe corporate innovation goes beyond developing new technologies in-house. Finding the right innovators to partner with, acquire or invest in is harder than ever – it’s virtually impossible to keep track of what’s out there, and to efficiently determine where there is a strategic fit. Venture IQ leverages a specialized software product and over 40 years of VC experience to help you find the right innovation.

We serve across industries, for example

Agri & Food

Smart farming equipment such as sensors, drones and robots are becoming mature. The consumer market is demanding healthier and more sustainably produced food. Innovative technology companies are pushing their products towards the incumbents, but how to pick the winners? 

At Venture IQ, we have been supporting clients like Nutreco and FrieslandCampina over the past five years to assess investment targets, identify potential vendors and inform R&D activities.

Energy

Blockchain, IoT and robotics are disrupting the production, distribution and usage of renewable energy. The investment pace in the industry is at an all-time high, and utilities, investment firms and service providers are fighting over the best startups. The technology promise is huge, examples from practice are often lacking. 

Over the past five years, Venture IQ has a track record of supporting leading European utilities and players in the energy sector to make better partnering and investment decisions. Want to know how?

Government

Digital technologies hold great promise for troublesome, bureaucratic government processes. Yet important considerations such as privacy and security of data hamper quick procurement and partnering decision making on the right technologies and vendors. 

Using Venture IQ services, governments can quickly identify relevant players, and objectively assess fit with their criteria through a data driven analysis. Venture IQ is an independent company without any ties to software vendors, ensuring an objective assessment and fair comparison of innovative companies, small and large.
