Founders take a short assessment. We measure 48 intrinsic attitudes that immediately indicate the likelihood of venture success.
Over 20 years, we collected data from a ‘hidden population’ of successful Australian business owners and the general Australian workforce. From the findings of our academically rigorous and peer-reviewed world-first study, we’ve defined:
Behaviors that correlate with business success and failure.
Attitudinal ‘blind spots’ that threaten startup success.
Correlations between specific attitudes and funding and exits.
Critical differences required in entrepreneurial leadership and business building.
How venture success can increase through founder self-evaluation.
Whether they’ve exited for $6m or $1.2b, everyone who leverages F4S has an inspiring story to share.
