Why use the ESI app?

The point of playing the myNexus ESI app isn’t to tell you what’s right and wrong, it’s about helping you find the right FIT.

The pitch process is often approached by trying to appear ‘perfect’, so on both sides there is a tendency to hide the things we fear will be perceived negatively. This means you can easily end up in a business relationship that has unnecessary risk built in. Pretending to be someone else isn’t the best way to enter a marriage!

We believe that many investments fail because the relationship is a poor match, so if you have this information upfront you can connect with the people who understand you from the get-go and reduce wasted time pretending to be something you’re not.

On the flip-side, it also allows you opportunity to work with people with those skills to improve yours.

The presence or absence of an entrepreneurial skill won’t of itself mean an investment relationship will succeed or fail. It’s the combination of entrepreneurial skills in the context of the business that truly makes the difference.

What we measure

The measurement and analysis of the data we collect is based on the world's only scientifically proven test for evaluating entrepreneurship potential. As we grow we’ll be developing new games that assess more skills, but for now you can see scores relating to :

Financial acumen

Measuring business success isn’t just how much money you make, but whether you understand the cost and revenue drivers

Sales and marketing

Customer experience score tells you whether your approach to sales and marketing matches how your customers want to be communicated to

People skills

Employee satisfaction score will change as you make decisions that impact the working environment and the success of the business

Attitude to risk

Decision making isn’t easy when it comes down to the wire, so are you risk averse or skewed towards favouring risk?


Understanding how your emotional drive can influence your thinking and impact business results both positively and negatively


Often seen a key entrepreneurial trait we measure whether your tenacity plays a part in your business success

Education & Accelerator Programmes

There are many applications for the myNexus ESI from using as a qualifying criteria for entry to an accelerator programme through to measuring success of entrepreneurial education programmes. In fact, almost anything to do with entrepreneurship.

We’re pleased to offer both a bulk purchase service for the myNexus ESI app and work closely with universities and entrepreneurship schemes to integrate the tool into their systems.
