The empirical evidence accumulated illustrates that emotional intelligence does have a significant impact on the individuals’ economic performance. It has been shown that emotional intelligence is just as important as regular intelligence in being a well-balanced employee. This formal and informal mix of knowledge is the basis for creating an environment, which gives support to various functions leading to entrepreneurial success.

In this context, the objective of the current paper is to investigate the impact of founder’s emotional intelligence on the entrepreneurial success measured by two main indicators such as volume of sales per employee and age of company conditional on various internal and external factors.
