5 Step Venture eMentoring Program™

Session 1: Self-Assessment

Module 1e: Entrepreneurial Aptitude Index

Instructions: This Entrepreneurial Aptitude Index presents various behavioral traits that may contribute to being successful in starting and operating your own venture, and shows the result as a quantitative score. This score can help reinforce the conclusions you have been reaching in the prior exercises. Review this list and talk it over with someone else - your partner, mentor or counselor. Using this as a basis for discussion can often uncover other issues affecting the business development process. Read this list carefully, complete the form, and be as honest with yourself as possible when checking off which level of response you can best identify with.
