Entrepreneur Scan arose from scientific research into entrepreneurship. The PhD research by Martijn Driessen at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands led to the Entrepreneur Competence Model. He was amazed that about fifty percent of the people with the serious intent in becoming a business owner, failed after five years. Since then his research led to a model with four basic elements of a competence: Motivation, Personal Characteristics, Qualities and Knowledge & Experience and on how to develop entrepreneurship.

These elements are then translated into what is needed for developing successful entrepreneurship. From this research and its widely use in the field of coaching and developing entrepreneurship our entrepreneur tests, tools and trainings have been further developed. Because of this we score high on customer satisfaction by both the end-user and his coach. Moreover, research showed that the entrepreneurial mindsets and firm performance has significantly improved. Success rates went up to 89% within 5 years (OECD, 2014). The average success rate is around 50%.
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.
