Build self-awareness

Without real-world work experience, many students are unaware of their strengths. F4S allows them see their unique affinities and blind spots—and how to best leverage them.

Optimize teams

F4S measures and tracks team culture and points out where students’ motivations align and where there may be conflict. All of this helps optimize founding team collaboration.

Predict success

Armed with extensive data benchmarked against our success models, you can make informed predictions about which programs students and teams will thrive in.

Invite students to take our free F4S assessment.

Students begin by taking the F4S assessment to learn which work interests motivate them and which blind spots may hold them back.

Then, use our Ranking Tool to see how each student stacks up against our research samples of of the world's most successful entrepreneurs.
