How was this quiz made? The subject of entrepreneurship has a long history, but in terms of our knowledge of the characteristics of successful entrepreneurs it is still an emerging area of research. To develop this quiz we have thoroughly studied the existing literature, and worked with Brian Morgan, professor of entrepreneurship at Cardiff Metropolitan University, to focus on the psychological characteristics and managerial competences of actual entrepreneurs.
