Abstract:This paper contributes to the field of entrepreneurship through the development of a measuring tool for entrepreneurs. This measuring tool is based on the 4S Model of Groen (2005) and enables entrepreneurs to gain a better understanding of their specific situation in terms of four capitals. These capitals are cultural-, economic-, social- and strategic capital. Concepts related to these capitals are reviewed and operationalized, which leads up to a rubric style method with key indicators for each of the four capitals. As a result of this a measuring tool is presented which can be used during the entrepreneurial process of opportunity recognition, preparation and exploitation, generating more insight with regard to performance of the entrepreneur on these capitals.
