Funding Readiness

Secure your next funding round faster

Take an in depth self-evaluation questionnaire to prepare you for scrutiny from potential investors. The 50+ questions will ensure that you give enought thoughts to all aspects of your business model (from market evaluation to customer problem by way of team structure and much more).

This will help you understand how you will be evaluated by angel investors or VCs. But will also highlight the weakest points of your business plan that you are most likely to be challenged on.

Coaching

Receive structured feedback and focus on critical tasks

Our coaching solution allows for collaborative feedback. With coaching paper trail, handovers between mentors (from example from your incubator to an angel investor) become easy as ABC.

Once you will have filled in your funding readiness questionnaire or uploaded your pitch deck, you can invite mentors into your workspace. Intuitive tagging tools then allows them to work as a team and give you best in class feedback. 

Team alignment

Create strategic alignment in your team for efficient decision making

Get your co founders or leadership team to all fil in our funding readiness questionnaire to easily identify key difference of opinions.

Understanding and addressing these strategic misalignments early will save you time and energy. More importantly it will drastically improve your business chances of success.

FAQ

Need clarification?

Why was Höpöhöpö started?

Building a startup is tough. We’ve been there. And while it’s hard to say some of our team’s ventures succeeded, it is damn easy to know why some failed. Armed with these insights, some of us thought that moving to the other side and mentoring startups would be easy. Boy, were we wrong! Mentoring turned out to be even harder. Finally when we started to invest in startups, we noticed that getting to the root cause of issues is terribly time consuming. And with requests for advice from portfolio companies piling up, we were always running out of time.
 
That's why we started developing simple tools to analyze startups faster. At first it was just Google forms and spreadsheets allowing startups to self evaluate their issues. Then it was tools for us and other startups mentors to easily identify common issues not identified by the startups themselves. Höpöhöpö was born.
 
Fast forward a couple of months and over 70% of Finnish startups and investors like FIBAN had become users and we had gained unparalleled knowledge of the most common issues startups face at different development stages. But it also made us realise how much startups evaluate themselves differently than the way potential investors will evaluate them. That’s why we build a platform helping startups to develop 5x faster (we found this out from the data) with tools enabling easy diagnostic, better and faster feedback loops, more efficient handover between startup coaches and much more.

What kind of name is Höpöhöpö?

Yeah we understand. The dots on the o look weird in most languages. We are Finnish and it seemed natural to us to choose a Finnish name. While you might think all Finns do is have saunas, we are also big on startups (4th European country when it comes to startup per capita actually).  But more important is what it actually means. Höpöhöpö is usually said to someone who is talking silly or non-sense as a way to call them out and ask them to stop it. This is exactly what we want to bring into the noisy startup world: a no non-sense straight forward approach.

Who is the platform for?

We work with all actors interested in building thriving startup ecosytems (from founders, to VC, angel investors, city development agencies, incubators and startup competitions or events organisers). 

Which services does the platform provide?

The platform helps to evaluate startups (self diagnostic to give founders clarity,  improved screening of startup competition or investment aaplications),  develop them (by enabling super human mentoring and matchmaking with the right incubators or investors) and monitor the development of a startups cohorts(from investors portfolios to regional ecosystems).
