Abstract

This paper generally explores the linkage between entrepreneurial motivation traits and the entrepreneurial quality team. Thus, in this study, work experience is the control variable selected to moderate the relationship between entrepreneurial motivation traits and entrepreneurial quality team. Therefore this study aims to explore the moderating role of work experience in the relationship between entrepreneurial motivation traits and entrepreneurial quality team. Several scholars in their previous research highlight the relationship between motivation traits and the entrepreneurial intention, but in this research, we focus on its impact on the entrepreneurial quality team. Qualitative data were collected via a structured questionnaire addressed to a sample size of 262 entrepreneurs in Jiangsu province. The data analysis methodology of this research is structural equation modeling (SEM) through Smart PLS3 software. We found that there is a significant relationship between entrepreneurial motivation traits and entrepreneurial quality team. Then the moderating role of work experience is insignificant. We suggest that entrepreneurs should focus on their individual motivation to embrace a successful entrepreneurship career. The quality of the entrepreneurial team is determined by the individual motivation to achieve their personal goals. Therefore entrepreneurial motivation traits are one of the essential pillars to succeed in most of the businesses.
