In continuous development for the last seven years, based on over 35,000 founders’ test results and over 2,000 companies, the test measures a founder’s personality and fluid intelligence and can predict the likelihood that someone will become a successful tech entrepreneur with 85% accuracy, regardless of their idea, locale, or demographic.
Built on a foundation of data science, we use sophisticated algorithms to measure and assess over 40 data points across five broad categories of every company we target. Looking scientifically at product, market, currency, team and operations in order to determine the investment potential allows us to remove emotion from the equation.
The combination of the founders score and fundability score determines the companies Exit potential, the specific potential for that startup to return three to five times the total investment capital we will put in, accounting for all follow on rounds, fees and expenses. Our exit potential calculation takes into account time thus finding early exits.
