How do West Coast entrepreneurs think differently?

For the past six years, an early-stage startup accelerator known as The Founder Institute has been conducting research on the differences between entrepreneurs from different cities on the West Coast. The research draws information from around 30,000 entrepreneurs from cities such as Portland, San Francisco, and Seattle. 

Seattle-based entrepreneurs demonstrate more stable emotions and are better at coming to an agreement. Entrepreneurs in the Bay Area, however, are more conscientious, energetic, and social than their counterparts up north. These are a few findings from more than six years of research conducted by The Founder Institute (FI), an early-stage startup accelerator that is unveiling some data related to personality traits of entrepreneurs up and down the West Coast. Since its birth in 2009, FI has worked with social scientists to develop a “Predictive Admissions Test” that is given to applicants and helps predict success. FI began by administering a personality and aptitude test to its entrepreneurs and watching their progress over the next 18 months.
