Belbin and Entrepreneurship:
The profiles of successful start‐ups is a fascinating insight into what behaviours work best across time for ensuring longevity and success.
Research shows that innovative start‐ups drive economic growth and are responsible for much job creation within the last five years, but little is understood about employees of start‐ups and how they contribute to the outcome of the venture.
Whilst some studies analyse the particular mix of business and technical skills, this paper aims to explore how different combinations of Team Role behaviours might spell success for new businesses.
Belbin has had the opportunity to partner with a number of SMEs as part of the UK Government’s Growth Accelerator scheme, and this research applies equally to Australia we have found.
