Abstract

The authors investigated the effect of founders’ human capital on the performance of their small firms. In our model, founder human capital had two dimensions: (1) level of education and (2) industry managerial experience. The authors hypothesized that higher levels of founder education and more years of founder industry managerial experience led to better firm performance. A survey of founder-managed natural food stores validated our hypotheses.
