Even with the growth and accelerating impact, Hispanic business owners face very real challenges.

Entrepreneurial Mindset Profile

Developed by the Leadership Development Institute at Eckerd College (LDI), the Entrepreneurial Mindset Profile® (EMP) is an empirically-based, cutting-edge, online assessment tool that helps individuals and groups assess the degree to which they are utilizing an “entrepreneurial mindset,” an essential attribute to starting a business and sustaining growth and innovation within organizations. Accompanying each EMP Feedback Report is the EMP Development Guide that includes interpretive material on 14 scales, suggestions for development, recommended resources and guidelines for planning a successful course of action. Contact emindsetprofile@eckerd.edu to learn about SCORE client/member benefits and to take the EMP.
