Effect of Innovativeness, Risk Taking, Self-Confidence, and Need for Achievement on Venture Performance: Evidence from Switzerland

Tajeddini, Kayhan LU and Tajeddini, Keyvan (2008) In European Journal of International Management 2(4). p.437-453
Abstract
While prior research has often used psychological characteristics to identify entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial behaviour, little has been done to predict venture performance. This study examines the impact of four entrepreneurial characteristics on venture performance. The findings are mixed with previous research but provide a new insight by exploring the characteristics of entrepreneurs in general and Swiss entrepreneurs in particular from a fresh empirical perspective. In the light of existing literature, limitations and future research directions are subsequently addressed.
