The Method

a journey from Opportunity to Ownership, and back

 

 

Our approach is based on our seminal discoveries as entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, the exploratory PhD program that followed, and the award-winning method our co-creation and action research produced.

 

At its core, HippoMeter is based on our co-entrepreneurial Runway-to-Growth (R2G) method which empowers the Kasvu Open concept, which we created for the Central Finland Chamber of Commerce as our first order of business.

 

The HippoMeter method introduces a progressive, rigorous, tested and proven framework for the art and science of high-impact business creation. Based on pilots with over 100 startups in 22 countries, HippoMeter works reliably across all borders, industries, technologies, business models, and development stages.

 

The HippoMeter framework gears around 7 core elements

 

\

Opportunity

Deals with the problem, the nature and level of pain and demand, the size and growth of market, and the solution value being offered.

 

\

Scalability

Deals with the current technical and functional readiness of the solution, the potential for a scalable offering, and the overall technology advantage.

 

\

Defensibility

Deals with what all can be done and what has been done to protect the solution and the related value chain.

 

\

Capability

Deals with the current managerial capacity, requirements, and readiness of the organization to execute the envisioned scaling of operations.

\

Profitability

Deals with the economics of the business case, resources at hand, revenue logic, earning power, financial projections, and funding needs.

\

Market Entry

Deals with current vs. targeted market position and status of go-to-market measures to successfully reach market acceptance.

\

Ownership

Deals with Who owns and Why owns, the mindset of controlling owners and who all should be engaged, and How, to seize the Opportunity.

 

"The knowledge to achieve scaleup readiness is difficult to find, expensive, and time-consuming to build. We’ve squeezed the best wisdom into a unique algorithm and tool that enable every Founder Team to create it for themselves, instantly and affordably."
