The EQA comprises several components that are designed to determine the extent to which your results align with those generated by a group of proven successful entrepreneurs. The comparative groups of successful entrepreneurs were selected using selective inclusion criteria to ensure their responses to the EQA would be representative and differentiating. Two of the EQA components are derived from measures found in the psychology literature dealing with the evaluation of aspiring entrepreneurs. Two other components of the EQA are unique to EntreMetric and are designed to evaluate judgement and perceived competence. Taken together along with the business acumen results, these five components are analyzed to generate three statistically-derived factors that are used to evaluate how your responses compare to responses drawn from a select group of proven successful entrepreneurs.
