This study aims at evaluating the effect of entrepreneur resilience on entrepreneurial perceived success, and the moderating role of stakeholders' engagement on the aforementioned relationship, proposing and testing two related hypotheses. Accordingly, although there has been an increasing interest in organisational resilience, resilience at an individual level has received less attention, especially from the entrepreneur perspective. To reach the paper's goal, we apply a quantitative methodology involving data gathered from 117 entrepreneurs managing small businesses active in different industries. The research findings indicate that perceived resilience of entrepreneurs is positively associated with their perception of success. Moreover, the relationship is stronger for entrepreneurs with a wide network of stakeholders. These findings help making a step forward in this field of research and suggesting entrepreneurs' valuable social and practical implications.

Abstract

This study aims at evaluating the effect of entrepreneur resilience on entrepreneurial perceived success, and the moderating role of stakeholders' engagement on the aforementioned relationship, proposing and testing two related hypotheses. Accordingly, although there has been an increasing interest in organisational resilience, resilience at an individual level has received less attention, especially from the entrepreneur perspective. To reach the paper's goal, we apply a quantitative methodology involving data gathered from 117 entrepreneurs managing small businesses active in different industries. The research findings indicate that perceived resilience of entrepreneurs is positively associated with their perception of success. Moreover, the relationship is stronger for entrepreneurs with a wide network of stakeholders. These findings help making a step forward in this field of research and suggesting entrepreneurs' valuable social and practical implications.
