The Entrepreneurial Mindset Network is an international community of practice for the entrepreneurial mindset with members located in 107 countries.  

Our vision is that everybody can benefit from having an entrepreneurial mindset, whether they run their own business or are employed in the private, public or not for profit sectors.

Our mission is to inspire you to use the entrepreneurial mindset so that you can make your unique contribution to the world.


Many people use the phrase “entrepreneurial mindset” but it is often used in a vague or ill-defined way. To solve this problem, the Entrepreneurial Mindset Network has created an easy to understand, common sense and practical definition of the entrepreneurial mindset based on 7 essential entrepreneurial behaviours.

The entrepreneurial mindset offers benefits for everyone

1. The mindset is valuable to everyone, not just entrepreneurs. Anyone can gain benefits from thinking and acting like an entrepreneur.

2. It is highly relevant to people who are employed in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.

3. It can be used in every country and culture throughout the developed and developing world.

4. The Network has members in 107 countries and has 4 special interest groups exploring the application of the entrepreneurial mindset in Business, Education, Healthcare and Social entrepreneurship. To join simply click on the [JOIN] button at the top right of this page.

5. In a world that is increasingly complex and uncertain, the entrepreneurial mindset is a 'must have' not 'a nice to have’.

6. It enables the creation of many forms of value, including economic, social and cultural.

7. It can be used to create benefits for individuals, organisations and society.

8. It is inclusive and celebrates diversity as a catalyst for innovation.

9. Whoever you are, and wherever you live, the mindset will help you to stay confident, to see opportunities and to overcome challenges.

10. The entrepreneurial mindset will help you to make your unique contribution to the world.

Entrepreneurial behaviours are your key to future success

1. Entrepreneurs enjoy success in life because of their behaviours ie the way they think and act.

2. Action, and therefore behaviour, is central to the concept of the entrepreneurial mindset.

3. Anyone can benefit from thinking and behaving like an entrepreneur.

4. The Network has created an easy to understand, common sense and practical definition of the entrepreneurial mindset based on 7 essential entrepreneurial behaviours.

5. Other definitions of the mindset focus on generic business skills or transferable skills. Our definition captures the distinctive nature of entrepreneurship.

6. Skills are the abilities you have learned. Behaviour is the act of putting those skills to good use.

7. We describe our 7 entrepreneurial behaviours as essential not optional. Essential behaviours challenge you to make full use of your existing skills.

8. An entrepreneurial mindset empowers you to take action about the things you really care about.

9. Entrepreneurs choose to take personal responsibility for making change happen. Like an entrepreneur, you say to yourself "I think this change is important - how am I going to make it happen?"

10. Each of us can make our contribution. The right mindset can help you change the world.

Everyone can learn to behave more entrepreneurially

1. It is not the case that only some people are born with the right mindset. Anyone can learn to use the behaviours of entrepreneurs in their own career & life.

2. Our definition of the mindset is a guiding framework not a recipe for conformity. Our learning tools adapt to the needs of each individual.

3. To support people around the world, the Network’s definition of the mindset has been translated into many languages and is relevant in diverse cultural contexts.

4. Find inspiration in the Network’s eZINE that has numerous mindset examples shared by people from all around the world.

5. You can share experiences, explore questions and co-create solutions during our interactive xCHANGE webinars and download summaries of the key lessons from past events.

6. We offer webinars and workshops to support learning & development for students, employees, leaders and organisations.

7. We support your learning by asking the right questions,  ones that will really make you think, and help understand your current behaviours.

8. We offer a Mindset Behaviours Assessment (MBA) which has a range of tools to stimulate  self-reflection and support your action-planning.

9. We help you to be realistic. Success does not come easily. Entrepreneurs face difficult financial challenges and mental health pressures.

10. The entrepreneurial mindset isn’t wishful thinking. It means being prepared to put hard work in and being resilient during difficult times in your entrepreneurial journey.

Benefits of the mindset for individuals

The right mindset will help you not just to cope with all the changes life throws at you, but to be strong, to thrive and to build a path towards the best possible version of your life. It empowers and energises you, it makes you realistic and determined. The mindset keeps your motivation high, even in difficult times. It helps you to be resilient; you say to yourself “despite all the obstacles, how do I make this happen?” The entrepreneurial mindset will help you to achieve your goals in life and your career, and to make your unique contribution to the world.

Benefits of the mindset for organisations

The entrepreneurial mindset can make sure that an organsiation gets the very best from each of its employees. Leaders and managers can use the mindset to release all the untapped human potential in their organisations, by empowering employees, encouraging and rewarding them to innovate, take risks and act in the interests of customers. Innovation is enhanced when more employees are empowered, when there is greater diversity, inclusivity and equity. Employees with the right mindset transform the organisation with their can-do attitude. In turn, this enables organisations to succeed with significant, large scale and transformational change.

Benefits of the mindset for society

Society is improved by having more people who feel empowered to take action about societal issues. It makes a difference when individuals choose to try and make their own contribution to societal problems. The entrepreneurial mindset can help each of us to see our place in the larger system and the part we can play. As individuals we can't solve the really big problems by ourselves but we can find and collaborate with other people who share the same desire to make a difference. When each of us asks “I think this change is important so how do I make it happen?” we can all find the part we can play in addressing societal and global issues, including the Sustainable Development Goals as agreed by the United Nations General Assembly.


We collect and share stories from our members and publish them online in a regular eZINE. The purpose is to showcase a diverse group of people, who are using the entrepreneurial mindset in a wide variety of contexts. These stories can help you to reflect on your own practice and think how to make use of the key lessons that the authors have shared.

Foreword by Paul Coyle

I first wrote and published this book in 2019. My goal was to help readers to develop their entrepreneurial mindset with a step-by-step practical guide. I want anybody to be able to pick up the book and feel inspired to develop their mindset.

Of course an entrepreneurial mindset is essential when you are starting, running or growing a company in any business sector.  The good news is that it is just as useful if you are an employee in a private company, in the public sector or in a not-for-profit organisation.

The mindset empowers you to learn how to become the best version of yourself, so that you can go on to achieve all your career and life goals.


The Entrepreneurial Mindset Network provides a range of workshops and master classes that accelerate the development of the mindset. These events are engaging, realistic, inclusive, make the most of your existing expertise and create actions that are designed to support real change.  Following completion of a master class, participants have the option to add an award to the Education section of their LinkedIn profile. Details of workshops and master classes can be found on the websites dedicated to each of the Network's special interest groups.

5 Reasons our Master Classes are Distinctive and Impactful.  

1 We make our Master Classes engaging. We focus on discussions and practical exercises. We keep the formal input brief and to the point. We keep it interesting and relevant.

2 We keep it real. We talk about what it is really like. We facilitate discussion of positive points and frustrations. We don’t shy away from the difficult issues.

3 We are inclusive. We make sure every voice is heard. We help you to innovate by considering different points of view. We facilitate the crowdsourcing and co-creation of practical solutions.

4 We make the most of your existing expertise. We assume that each participant has useful experience to share. We offer a framework that helps you to make the best of your existing knowledge and skills. We capture and reflect back your best ideas.

5 We focus on actions to generate real change. We make sure you can take action as soon as you get back to your desk. We help you to make professional choices. We fire up your motivation and commitment to getting things done.


You can gain invaluable feedback about your entrepreneurial mindset by using our online MINDSET BEHAVIOUR ASSESSMENT (MBA). It is not the case that you either have the mindset or you don't, that you are either born with it or not. Each person can develop the strength of their entrepreneurial mindset over time and improve the way they think and act like an entrepreneur. Everybody can go on this entrepreneurial journey and the MBA will help you.

The MBA is designed to make you think, by asking you questions about your entrepreneuriual behaviours.  By considering the questions and choosing your answers, you will be able to reflect on those behaviours. You will receive immediate feedback on screen.  Afterwards you will immediately receive an email with the questions, your answers and some brief advice about how to make progress with your entrepreneurial behaviours in the future.

People who have used the MBA are based in the following 38 countries: Albania🇦🇱, Angola🇦🇴, Austria🇦🇹, Belgium🇧🇪,   Bosnia and Herzegovina🇧🇦, Canada🇨🇦, Egypt 🇪🇬, England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿, Estonia 🇪🇪, France🇫🇷, Germany🇩🇪, India🇮🇳,

Create Personal Development Plan with the MBA

The full MBA gives you feedback on all  7 of your entrepreneurial behaviours. You can derive maximum benefit from the MBA by combining it with Personal Coaching in a confidential video call. This discussion will help you to really understand the feedback you have received.

Coaching provides you with expert advice so that you can create a certified Personal Development Plan, which you can use for career planning and advancement.

Use the MBA to create a Team Development Plan

The MBA can also be used for team evaluation and development. Everybody in the team uses the MBA and receives their own confidential feedback with coaching.  This is followed by an online event  to review the overall results and performance for the team as a whole.  

The outcome is a deeper understanding of the team, the role of each member of the team, and a plan for improving performance.

Try the MBA for the behaviour [D] Dare to take risks

You can sample the MBA and get feedback about your entrepreneurial behaviour [D] Dare to take risks. You will be asked a series of questions. Each question will ask you to choose one of two options. There are no right or wrong answers. Simply consider each question and try to give an honest answer. 

After you have finished answering the questions, you will receive some brief feedback on screen. This feedback is designed to help you to reflect on your current entrepreneurial behaviour and think about how to improve in the future. You will also receive an email with a copy of the questions and your responses immediately after you finish using the MBA.
