Service description
This automated easy-to-use online venture building service enables you to systematically improve your team’s scaleup and investor readiness. You can independently measure your current readiness, rate all key strategic assets, discover needs for improvements, lay ground for strategy work, and keep an expanding team engaged and aligned. It applies one-on-one interview methodology with a savvy investor, and personal learning journeys as such, completely at each team member’s private convenience. A multiple-choice questionnaire by design, HippoMeter efficiently converts the best judgements of all key people into actionable intel regarding resource and competence needs, team alignment, and investor pitch. HippoMeter is rooted in discoveries by entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, built on a scientifically rigorous algorithm and award-winning, globally proven method. Based on feedback from over 100 startups in 22 countries, HippoMeter works across technologies, industries, business models, and development stages. Pathfinder teams gain progress towards business angel, Transition teams towards VC, and Accelerator teams towards IPO readiness. After acquiring product rights, you can invite any number of co-founders, advisors, and key staff as independent fellow respondents (recommended 3-10 in total). After everyone has completed HippoMeter (takes one hour on average), you can instantly generate and view two online reports (Internal Report and External Report). You can share either report with your team to reach shared understanding, draw conclusions, and organise for concrete actions – the impacts of which can be measured by follow-up HippoMeter audits.
