Abstract: 

This article investigates the impact of social network size on business performance based on GEM (Global Entrepreneurship Monitor) data of Iran, Croatia and Denmark in 2008-2010. A sample of 1801 owner-managers participated in the GEM interviews was used. Social network of an entrepreneur is made up of private, job, experience, professional and market networks. Exploratory factor analysis showed that the experience network and private network have the highest and lowest factor loadings, respectively. Similarly, in factor analysis of performance, as a latent variable, the highest factor loading is for export and the lowest is for growth expectation. The results showed that Danish entrepreneurs establish their business mostly to exploit opportunities. The entrepreneurs' social network size in Iran is 2.9 while in two other countries, it is 6. The size of private network is higher than the size of other networks in Iran. The result of structural equation modelling showed that business performance (innovation, export and growth expectation) is affected significantly by social network size (74%), and this effect is moderated by role model (0.07%) and opportunity motivation (6%).
