What skills and traits do you measure?

myNexus ESI is comprised of two index scores which together make your entrepreneur type. Further explanation of the scores and their meaning can be found in the app or by ordering a detailed report from www.entrepreneurskillsindex.com 

The Entrepreneur Aptitude Index (EA Index) measures your potential for entrepreneurial success and is benchmarked to a psychometric test that is a scientific predictor of that potential. It consists of four elements:

  • Opportunism
  • Problem Solving
  • Innovation
  • Exploiting Results

The Entrepreneur Competence Factor Index (ECF Index) measures your preference for particular behaviours and is benchmarked to a psychometric test of common entrepreneurial skills. It consists of five elements:

  • Autonomy Oriented
  • Calculated Risk
  • Achievement Oriented
  • Personal Control
  • Creativity

Each Index has it's own thresholds for low, medium and high scoring ranges which when combined give an overall Index rating and an ESI Entrepreneur Type:
