In the course of a growing start-up market and strongly increasing investment volume, investors try to predict the success of a business as precisely as possible in advance. However, when assessing the personality of the founder or founding team, they still rely far too often on their gut feeling, thereby reducing the quality of their decisions. Our study therefore aimed at investigating whether there are any relationships between the founders personality traits and their performance and thus justifying the need for more targeted and optimized diagnostics in the ﬁeld of founder personality. With a total of 141 founders, clear correlations between personality traits (conscientiousness, emotional stability) and performance could be demonstrated in the present study. In addition, it became evident that perceived stress is also related to the founders’ personality (emotional stability negative, conscientiousness positive) and in turn has a negative effect on performance. Our ﬁndings contribute to raising awareness of the importance of personality as a predictor of founders performance, improving decision-making, and, in the long run, replacing gut feeling as an inappropriate assessment criterion of investors.
