What type of entrepreneur are you?

The Own Business Fair, 2010 saw the launch of the EPT - Entrepreneurial Profile Test - a questionnaire that helps determine which of 6 entrepreneur profiles you are closest to.

The suggestion is that entrepreneurs have different characteristics that help them succeed in their tasks. Based on research conducted by MIT (MIT Entrerprise forum) that identified five profiles,  entreprenologist and international consultant Stefan Lindstrom presented at the International Conference of Thinking in Kuala Lumpur a sixth archetype: the work style profile. Lindstrom, together with psychologist Hans-Olle Frummerin, then created the EPT based on all six archetypes.

What you get out of the Entrepreneurial Profile Test

By creating an image of how you work in your entrepreneurial role, you get an idea of your strengths and weaknesses and the development opportunities available to you.

The test offers you a rich perspective on your character as an entrepreneur. That way you can become an even better entrepreneur and more aware of your full capacity. You also get a better understanding of why you do what you do and why you are where you are today, and maybe even what direction you want to go in next.

EPT - was developed by Stefan Lindstrom, entreprenologist, and licensed psychologist Hans-Olle Frummerin from an idea by Nicklas Mattsson. EPT is based on research on entrepreneurs Stefan Lindstrom has conducted during his years in the world of entrepreneurship.

  Stefan Lindstrom's research on entrepreneurship has aroused interest worldwide.

In late June he was invited as the only Swedish speaker to share his latest research findings on The International Conference on Thinking. See abstract.

The conference is the world's premier assembly to present ideas on a wide scope of topics. Speakers present talks on education, leadership, business, health & medicine, science and technology, the environment, and the humanities. The International Conference on Thinking is operated by a U.S. committee headed by David Perkins, professor of education at Harvard University.

Lindstrom himself is an entrepreneur who became interested in how people and especially entrepreneurs work and think . 

He presents his ideas on  how one can benefit from their experience in the business world and for individual development. He has also developed learning programs for a variety of businesses and organizations over the years.

During the 90s, Lindstrom participated as a lecturer and was an inspiration for  the SAF's (now Confederation of Swedish Enterprise) project "The move to its own". The goal of that conference was to disseminate knowledge about entrepreneurship throughout Sweden. Lindstrom has also lectured at Stockholm University.

In 2005 he lived in the United States for study and  research at the Entrepreneurial Management Institute at Boston University School of Management.

He is up to date in the journal Entreprenörs panel of experts -- Ask the experts.
