25  SUMMARY OF YOUR RESULTS
Welcome to Discover Your Enterprise Skills

Welcome to this first section of the EVA platform. Here you will first be asked a series of questions to discover what your abilities are to become an entrepreneur and to highlight which areas you might benefit from developing.


Go through the tests and questions and answer them as best you can. We recommend that you have considered which type of entrepreneur you want to be, and what field of business you want to be in, before you start the test.

When you then answer the questions, you should have this in mind and answer according to this.

The assessment contains questions regarding your attitude, your experience and your personality. All of this ends up in a summary of your results, where you will get some recommendations on how you can improve your competencies.

Have fun with discovering your enterprise skills!

You already have experience in being an entrepreneur and you have indicated that this experience was also in the field that you wish to become an entrepreneur in again. This is great! You already know the basics of being an entrepreneur and some of the work it takes. You also have insight into the field, which may be of great use to you in your new adventure. But even though you know the field of work, some things may have changed or be different from what you know, such as the costumer handling, marketing, etc.

You already have experience in being an entrepreneur though in a different field than the one you plan to go into now. This gives you a good starting point for becoming an entrepreneur. You know the basics of being an entrepreneur and some of the work it takes. You might have experiences from other jobs that you can use, so think about the competences and knowledge you have. It will also be a good idea to look into the field you are planning to go into in this country and do some research on that.

You do not have any previous experience in being an entrepreneur, but you have indicated that you have experience with the field you wish to become an entrepreneur in. That is positive. However, you should consider the competences needed as an entrepreneur and focus on learning the basics of entrepreneurship.
You should go through Unit 3 to get knowledge on being an entrepreneur.

You do not have any previous experience as an entrepreneur. Neither do you have experience in the field in which you would like to become an entrepreneur.
We recommend you read carefully about being an entrepreneur (Unit 3 – Starting Your Business), the legislation and requirements (Unit 2 - Business Creation) and the local business culture in the country (Unit 6 - Culture, Language, Communication and Networking).

Much experience from a short time ago
You have several years of experience and it was not that many years ago you got the experience. So you should still remember the basics of what you learnt. However, we recommend that you refresh your knowledge and look through the materials to see if there might be something, you do not already know.
Pay special attention to the cultural aspects (unit 5) and legislation (unit 1) if your experience was made in another country.

Much experience from a long time ago
You have several years of experience, but it seems it was a number of years ago you gained this. It will be useful for you to refresh your knowledge and check whether something new has happened since then.
Pay special attention to the cultural aspects (unit 5) and legislation (unit 1) if your experience was made in another country.

Little experience from a short time ago

You do not have much experience, but the experience you have was quite recent. This means the knowledge you have might still be quite clear in your memory. However to broaden your competencies and knowledge, we recommend you go through the suggested materials to get further insights.
Consider going more carefully through the sales and marketing unit (unit 4) and the cultural materials (unit 5). Also consider the legislative aspects (unit 1) if you had your experience in another country.

Little experience from long ago

You do not have much experience and it was quite long ago you got it. We recommend you view the suggested materials carefully and strengthen your knowledge to make sure you are equipped to start your own business.
Focus on relating the knowledge you learned within the field you wish to work in and reflect on what you need to do to be successful. Consider going more carefully through the sales and marketing unit (unit 4) and the cultural materials (unit 5). Also consider the legislative aspects (unit 1) if you had your experience in another country.

You have indicated that you have educational experience with the area

It is great that you have some experience in the field other than practical work experience. You should take what you learnt and the knowledge you have from that and consider how it can help you as a new entrepreneur in the field. Maybe it can help you when you read about business plan, market analyses, etc.

You have indicated that you have done volunteer work in the area.

Maybe it can help you when you read about business plan, market analyses, etc.

As you do not have any other experience in the field, we suggest you consider if there is anything you should pay special attention to. Maybe you would benefit from speaking to someone who is an entrepreneur already. Or maybe you can speak to an business consultant or advisor, who can help you clarify if this is indeed the best field for you to go into.

Your home country is:

Since your experience was made in another country, the system and legislation in the country you live in now might be very different from what you know. This means it will be a good idea for you to investigate what is needed to start a new business here. Also, if you worked in the field in another country, you should consider that it might be different in your current country, and you might need to research on permits, marketing, customer service, etc.
We recommend that you study Unit 1 - Business Creation and Unit 2 – Starting Your Business carefully.

Your home country is:
You have indicated that your experiences were made in your current country. This means you have an insight into the business system and how things work already. However legislation change all the time and you might need to get updated on what is new. Also there might be areas that you did not get into contact with previously, that you need to investigate.
