    Abstract

    Identifying which factors affect firms’ performance is a critical issue. Within International Entrepreneurship stream of search, most of the extant studies have focused on the individual entrepreneur (Watson et al., 1995), with entrepreneurial team (ET) neglected in the literature (Foo et al., 2006). Our paper addresses the influence of ET over the behavior and performance of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). We argued that the entrepreneurial team is decisive in SMEs, inasmuch as the lack of resources push them to rely more on their entrepreneurial team (Escribà-Esteve et al. 2009). Based on a survey of 301 small and medium-sized enterprises of Lombardy, we demonstrated that entrepreneurial team demographics have a crucial role in the determination of performance
