I am an entrepreneur coach. For over 25 years now. I know, I started my business early even before I graduated as a Business Administration student. Although back then, I introduced myself as an entrepreneur consultant to small business owners. What struck me back then was that owner-managers didn't have a clear view of their own entrepreneurial traits and skills. And it impacted their business greatly. That puzzled me. What puzzled me, even more, is that for many years still on average, 1 in 2 business owners (EU & USA) survive the first 5 years. Did you know that? While the true entrepreneur emerges in times of crisis, as you see now in Covid-19. I started researching this long-standing fact and the entrepreneurial personality and obtained my Ph.D. on measuring and developing entrepreneurial skills. The E-Scan was developed and scientifically validated, entrepreneurscan.com/research/. What the DISC assessment is for corporate people, the E-Scan is to entrepreneurs. In the meantime, I started another company that designs, develops, and delivers software as a service to entrepreneur coaches and enterprise organizations all over the world. Over 1,000,000 (aspiring) entrepreneurs gained instant insight with E-Scan. In several entrepreneurship programs (Chambers of Commerce, OECD, Young Enterprise), E-Scan's validity has reconfirmed: survival rates went up to 89% after 5 years, and the entrepreneurial mindset grows by 44,4% in just 1 year. Maybe, you're curious about your own score, your Entrepreneurial Index? If so, you can take the E-Scan for free here: entrepreneurscan.com.
