Proactive scouting is key to make the right investment and partnering decisions

Proactive scouting is key to make the right partnering or investment decisions. It is also very time consuming when done properly and requires the right tools and analysis. Our data-driven service offering allows corporates and investors to accelerate their proactive screening, ensuring better market insight, better matches and better returns for investor and investee alike.

“Our relationship with Venture IQ again proved to be of great benefit to Eneco. In close cooperation we succeeded in identifying the best in class solutions for our requirements in limited time. A nice additional benefit was that VIQ pointed us towards research projects in this field which has led to promising new insights.”
