Business coaching tools
Coaches, advisors, and teachers can’t rely on their gut feeling: they need tools to assess and develop entrepreneurship. Therefore, we have developed an entrepreneurial assessment test: E-Scan. This online tool gives you – in an instant – a detailed and accurate insight into the entrepreneurial profile. As a coach, it helps you to have that discussion about your client and to make them think about themselves, which is usually superficially discussed. So, it will increase their self-awareness.
For example, did you know that only 28% of small business owners have accurate self-knowledge? There is a good chance that small business owners make wrong decisions based on their wrong self-image. That could have devastating consequences.
For instance, one of the many tools of E-Scan is the 360º Feedback. With this tool, the self-image of the entrepreneurs will increase even more, because better self-knowledge ultimately helps your client to build a company that survives the future.
E-Scan is scientifically proven, and more than 750,000 people have gained insight into their entrepreneurial profile.
The Ph.D. research by Dr. Martijn Driessen at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands led to the Entrepreneur Competence Model. As a result, E-Scan and the additional online tests and tools arose from this scientific research into entrepreneurship.
From this research and its widespread use in the field of business coaching and developing entrepreneurship, we (co-) design, develop and deliver entrepreneur tests, tools, and training. As a consequence, our tests and tools score high on customer satisfaction by both the end-user and their coach, advisor or teacher.
Moreover, research showed that entrepreneurial mindsets and firm performance have significantly improved. Success rates went up to 89% within 5 years (OECD, 2014). However, the average success rate is around 50% in Europe and the USA.

Reviews from our customers
There are a number of (Flamish) tests for start-ups and business owners, but they tend to miss their target. Because these “Cosmopolitan Tests” are more about gauging the knowledge of doing business instead of answering the question if being an entrepreneur is something for you. E-Scan is by far the most complete and reliable entrepreneur tests that exists.
Our introduction to the E-Scan was an eye-opener, 10 years later it is still the basis for our business coaching of thousands of SME entrepreneurs by now. Alongside with Entrepreneur Scan we discover more and more the “depth” of their valuable tools. Coupled with business coaching is thus the basis for a deeper development of entrepreneurship.
