Description

Ingrid Verheul of the Rotterdam School of Management, along with a research team, studied more than 7,000 Swedish twins and 13,000 Dutch students to see if they could link ADHD to entrepreneurship. She concluded that ADHD characteristics were very useful in entrepreneurship. Intuitively, the association between ADHD symptoms and entrepreneurship seems easily explained, but it is the first time scientists studied the phenomenon so extensively.
