Does your brain know how to see solutions and solve problems? Can your brain keep driving you forward when others see insurmountable challenges? Do you have the brain of a born problem-solver, solution-finder, an innovator or even an entrepreneur?

The Entrepreneurship Institute is working in partnership with researchers at the King’s College London’s Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience to answer the age-old question of whether or not entrepreneurs are born or made. This question, which features on panel discussions and MBA interviews around the world, is the focus of a new PhD study which aims to uncover what happens in the brain of entrepreneurs that enables them to take action, solve problems, persevere and cope with uncertain environments.

As part of this study, we are inviting our community to put their brain power to the test through a scientifically developed study. Not only will you get a personalised reading on your cognitive strengths such as including attention, problem-solving, reasoning, memory and decision-making, but you’ll also be contributing to wider research about how entrepreneurial cognition develops.

Take the Entrepreneurial Brain Challenge here!

The results of this study will go on to help design and inform evidence-based enterprise education and training internationally, so we can support future generations of entrepreneurial people to make the world a better place.
