With its philosophy of "start-up: successful and healthy", this tool helps future entrepreneurs start their own companies.

The "Identifying and promoting entrepreneurial personalities" project is an interdisciplinary collaboration. The project forms part of the "Entrepreneurship" research and development program, which seeks to promote entrepreneurial thinking and action in Northwest Switzerland. The "Entrepreneurship" program is one of four strategic initiatives in which FHNW tackles the social challenges of our time.

The Entrepreneur Check provides scientifically based feedback on personal strengths and weakness for prospective founders. The personality module offers feedback on characteristics such as persistence, self-control, resilience, innovative capabilities, and the willingness to take risks. The health module looks at dealing with issues such as nutrition and stress as well as exercise and rest.

The feedback offers advice on dealing with individual weaknesses. In addition, those whose behaviour is placing their entrepreneurial success or their own health at risk are given specific tips, useful websites and helpful brochures to download.
