Entrepreneur X Factor is not about the best plan, the most revenue or how good you can pitch. It's that magic bullet, that sees some entrepreneurs just fly, regardless of economies, skill, funding or resources. We have defined X Factor as where your passion and competence meet, based on 4 pillars; Presence | Clarity | Questions & Unique Ability. People will feel it within seconds of interacting with you. You should enter to see if you create instant attraction, how different markets get what your about and to get noticed internationally - and if you win, or become a finalist, you can leverage the heck out of this from a positioning viewpoint.
