What Makes a Good Entrepreneur? FI Infographic featured on Mashable

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-02-11

Aside from hard work and determination, entrepreneurs possess unique qualities that drive them to attempt the unimaginable. These traits, which we have coined “Entrepreneur DNA”, have been identified through our unique aptitude test that is given to each applicant of the Institute. With careful examination of each founder throughout the Institute’s 3.5 years in operation, we have discovered that older founders with more work experience tend to fare better than their younger, more inexperienced counterparts.

In addition to experience in the work field, it is crucial that Founders be emotionally stable, open to new ideas, and be moderately agreeable. An inflated ego will get you nowhere and you’ve got to be able to communicate effectively. While most of these attributes may not come as a surprise, one area that does not correlate with Founder success is a high IQ. To see the traits broken down and explained, check out our latest Infographic explaining “Entrepreneurial DNA”.

The infographic was recently featured on Mashable in the article "The Best Entrepreneurs Are Older, Have Less Ego" by Chris Taylor. Click here to learn more.
