Do You Have the Mind of a Startup Entrepreneur?

Posted on: July 8th, 2013 | by tmpadmin

Are you a transactional or transformational leader? According to Top Management Degrees, a blog that serves as a guide to management degree programs, your answer could go a long way to determining if you have what it takes to be an entrepreneur.

The infographic below highlights some of the things that help a startup entrepreneur go from idea to an actual startup. TMD’s data, referenced at the bottom of the infographic, promises to take a look “inside the mind of a startup entrepreneur.” Transactional leaders, they say, are destined to be the CEO of a well-established company, often traveling up the ladder of success. The transformational leader, on the other hand, is the one who’s cut out to “shift the paradigm”.

They’ve also assembled a wide range of quotes; from luminary entrepreneurs including: Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Larry Page, Catherine Cook, and Mark Zuckerberg, to support their theory about startup founders, entrepreneurs, and eventually leaders.
