While other studies only engage on different topics independently, regarding entrepreneurial behavior, we suggest that there are similarities, between these topics, related to an entrepreneurial behavior, that indicates that there are connections that matches an entrepreneurial profile. This profile, indicated by society, is often referred to, as a rich, happy man in a suit [1]. Making an entrepreneurial profile does not only cover visual aspects or finance. The complexity of an entrepreneurial profile consists of far more, which has to be taken into account. Where other studies only rely on single topics within nature and nurture, this paper extends an entrepreneurial profile by investigating the influences of three different topics within nature and nurture; behavior, perspective and character. The data collection is based on one semi structured interview, including observations of an entrepreneur who started his company 7 years ago. Our research suggests that there are indications of a connection between nature and nurture, if these three topics; behavior, perspective and character, are connected.
