About the Entrepreneur Archetype Assessment
The Entrepreneur Archetype Assessment is a 10-question quiz available to CoFoundersLab members that helps you to identify what drives you as an entrepreneur. Backed by 3+ years of research by our friends at BOSI Performance Institute, it takes only a minute but provides powerful insights to determine how another entrepreneur might best complement you and your team.
The four archetypes: Builder, Opportunist, Specialist, and Innovator
The Entrepreneur Archetype Assessment will help you identify a primary and secondary archetype. The four archetypes are:
Entrepreneurs with the Builder archetype are problem solvers who are great at building businesses and highly scalable systems to grow the business.
Entrepreneurs with the Opportunist archetype are wired to jump at any opportunity to sell, market, and promote.
Entrepreneurs with the Specialist archetype are experts in their field and have the analytical skills to dive deep into their industry.
Entrepreneurs with the Innovator archetype are highly creative and driven to entrepreneurship to create a great product or service.
Nearly all entrepreneurs will have a little bit of every archetype in them, but most will be driven by a primary archetype and a secondary archetype.

Making better matches
The Entrepreneur Archetype Assessment helps you learn more about yourself as an entrepreneur, but it’s even more useful when trying to find that perfect co-founder. You can now compare yourself with other entrepreneurs who have also taken the assessment.
To see another entrepreneur’s archetype, simply navigate to their profile. On the right side of their profile, you’ll see their archetype listed if they have taken the assessment.
Scroll over their archetype to see a few basic strengths and weaknesses.
Click the “Show Comparison” button to see your archetype overlayed on top of theirs as well as a side-by-side comparison of your archetypes.
If another entrepreneur hasn’t yet taken the assessment, you can request that they do! Just click the “Request” button in the Archetype section when viewing their profile.
We’re very excited to be releasing the first version of our comprehensive compatibility matching algorithm. Stay tuned for advanced features coming soon that provide tailored recommendations based on your archetype!
