The Entrepreneurship Value Profile (EVP)

The EVP is a psychometric assessment designed to measure traits predictive of entrepreneurship performance in startup, scaleup, and intrapreneurship settings. The EVP was developed to guide the development of human capital and reach peak performance. 


Entrepreneurship Value Profile: inside pages
No single personality profile defines an entrepreneur. 

Entrepreneurship requires a team of individuals with diverse personalities. The EVP helps teams understand those diverse personalities and how to architect the best team structure. 


Personality predicts the 12 Pillars of Entrepreneurship.

The 12 Pillars were identified by an in-depth multi-year analysis, examining the key tasks, responsibilities, and behaviors that drive success. Blackhawke drew from over a century’s worth of research in entrepreneurial behavior, including over 1,000 scientific studies.

Instead of solely reporting personality, the EVP is focused on explaining how personality predicts entrepreneurship performance.

No one is one perfect; everyone has assets and liabilities.

The EVP helps individuals and teams understand their assets and liabilities in the context of entrepreneurship. The EVP helps teams:

  • Discover how to leverage human capital
  • Identify areas of developmental need
  • Gain self-awareness 
  • Understand team members
  • Pinpoint team assets and liabilities 
Entrepreneurship is a team process with many stakeholders.

The EVP was developed for multiple purposes to be used by multiple groups including startups, investors, and startup development organizations. The EVP can be used to

  • Assess team capital during due diligence
  • Develop individual and team performance
  • Gain self-awareness 

It's simple and easy.
