Market Analysis Summary

Emerging companies will be the target market for several reasons:

  1. They are in need of HR services as they are growing rapidly.
  2. They often do not have a large enough in-house solution as they are increasing in size.
  3. Capital is a scarce resource for emerging companies so the ability to accept stock options in replace of cash is appealing.

The emerging company market can be further broken down into two categories, technology and non-technology.  The significance of the breakdown is not that significant because many of the networking activities are occurring in settings that do not differentiate between technology and non-technology.

4.1 Market Segmentation

Human Capital Maximizers market can be segmented into two different groups, emerging high-tech companies and emerging non-high tech companies.  The emerging high-tech companies are going to be the larger of the two segments.  Even with the Internet bubble bursting within the last year, there are still many different emerging high-tech companies proliferating.  This is evidenced by the Business Journal of Portland which in their annual list of fastest growing companies for this year, 18 of the top 25 were technology companies.

There are also non-technology companies that are emerging in the Portland area and Human Capital Maximizers will be able to serve them as well.

Market Analysis
Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Year 5
Potential Customers Growth CAGR
Emerging technology companies 10% 345 380 418 460 506 10.05%
Emerging non-technology companies 9% 225 245 267 291 317 8.95%
Other 0% 0 0 0 0 0 0.00%
Total 9.62% 570 625 685 751 823 9.62%

4.2 Target Market Segment Strategy

Human Capital Maximizers’ two markets will be primarily targeted through networking activities.  Some networking will be conducted through the Oregon Entrepreneur Association, an association that supports entrepreneurial ventures in the local area.   This organization has monthly meetings that are in round-table format, allowing members to socialize.

Human Capital Maximizers will also be networking from personal/professional contacts that Major has developed professionally in the last five years in the HR/start-up industry.  HCM will also be relying on word of mouth to grow its customer base.

Strategy and Implementation Summary

Human Capital Maximizers will use their competitive edge of compensation flexibility to attract emerging companies.  This competitive advantage is especially valuable to emerging companies who are typically struggling to find enough capital to grow their business.  Accepting stock options as compensation is useful because equity is one thing these companies have lots of (that is of course if they haven’t given it all away to the Venture Capitalists).

5.1 Milestones

Human Capital Maximizers will have several milestones early on:

  1. Business plan completion.  This will be done as a roadmap for the organization.  This will be an indispensable tool for the ongoing performance and improvement of the company.
  2. Set up office.
  3. HCM’s first five customers.
  4. Profitability.

Set up office 1/1/2001 2/1/2001 $0 ABC Department
HCM’s first five customers 1/1/2001 3/31/2001 $0 ABC Department
Profitability 1/1/2001 ****** $0 ABC Department
Totals $0

5.2 Sales Strategy

As stated earlier, the marketing and sales will be done primarily through networking.  This means the bulk of the leads will have been developed through a personal/professional relationship that Major has developed either in his previous professional work or through his activities with the Oregon Entrepreneurs Association and other similar associations.  The sales spiel will be based on Human Capital Maximizers experience in the field as well as their flexibility for compensation.  Major will be able to explain to the prospective client the areas that he has experience in and the solutions that he can offer. 

Major will also be able to speak about Human Capital Maximizers ability to accept options in lieu of cash.  This will be appealing to companies, particularly in the current capital market which is quite scarce.  Since capital is more difficult to come by now than in the last few years, emerging companies will be excited about this option.

5.2.1 Sales Forecast

The first month will be used to set up the office.  Additionally, during the first month Major will be working hard on developing contracts. The second month will see some activity, but it will not be until month six when business will be picking up at a higher rate.  Sales will continue to grow through year three.

Emerging non-technology companies $830 $1,569 $1,851
Subtotal Direct Cost of Sales $2,905 $5,492 $6,478

5.3 Competitive Edge

Human Capital Maximizers competitive edge is their flexibility for compensation.  Most or all other companies require compensation to be in the form of cash, for them cash is king.  Human Capital Maximizers is able to take stock options in lieu of some cash.  While Human Capital Maximizers needs some cash to float the business, it can take up to 75% of its fees in equity.  Human Capital Maximizers is able to do this because they have secured an office space that is low in cost, helping them reduce their overhead.  In addition, Major’s wife contributes a significant portion of money to the household so Major is not in need of a lot of monthly compensation.  This allows him to accept options as payment in hopes of an upside to come several years for now. (Please note the the HR industry, unlike law firms and accounting firms do not run into conflict of interests situations regarding receiving equity as compensation.)

Web Plan Summary

The website will be used as a resource that prospective companies can view to gain more information about the company.  In essence it is Human Capital Maximizers’ brochure.  On the site there will be information about the management of the company and corresponding bios indicating all of their experience.  Also on the website will be a list of present and past clients and information regarding Human Capital Maximizers’ fee structure and willingness to accept stakes of option.

6.1 Website Marketing Strategy

The marketing of the website will consist of submitting it to the popular search engines.  The website will be used more as a information tool that prospective companies can be sent to for more information about Human Capital Maximizers as opposed to marketing the website in order for the website to develop new leads.

6.2 Development Requirements

The development requirements will entail hiring an individual (preferably a student for cost saving purposes) to develop and produce the site.

Management Summary

Major Adversity, the founder and owner received his undergraduate degree in marketing from Reed College.  After completing college Major recognized that he would eventually need to go to graduate school but was not ready to yet. 

Major worked in a large bicycle store for four years after college.  Major started out as a mechanic but quickly moved up to manager where he was responsible for much of the operation.  Some of the new responsibilities that Major enjoyed was the interviewing, selection & hiring, compensation, and employee relations.  After fours years in the bike shop Major was looking for a new challenge so he entered the University of Portland to pursue his MBA. 

Major received his MBA within two years and went to work for Nike out of school in their HR department.  After a year and half Major left Nike to work for a HR consultancy boutique that worked primarily with technology companies, many of them start ups.  Major enjoyed this thoroughly because of the dynamic environment that his clients worked in.  Major stayed with this firm for a total of four years.  

Toward the end of Major’s four years he got married and his wife, as a professional, was contributing large amounts of salary to the household.  This led Major to consider opening his own HR consultancy because he would be able to undertake some risk since the household was supported to a large degree by his wife.  Additionally, Major was could consider taking equity as compensation because a monthly salary was not a necessity.

7.1 Personnel Plan

Major will work full time for Human Capital Maximizers.  By month six Major will have developed more work than he will be able to manage himself and he will hire an additional HR consultant to help him out.  The employee will receive a straight salary and will have no future equity options in the client’s companies.  This employee will be given HR projects and will do the research and sometimes present the findings to the client, other times will allow Major to present to the client.

Personnel Plan
Year 1 Year 2 Year 3
Major $24,000 $24,000 $24,000
Full time employee $24,500 $42,000 $42,000
