This paper examines the human network of entrepreneurs, and demonstrates the secrets of effective top management teams. More specifically, among entrepreneurs, founders in particular are dynamic by nature and familiar with their own business. However, some lack good skills in marketing and financing. Therefore, entrepreneurs must make up for their weakness by their sidekicks. Relatively speaking, entrepreneurs in established firms are less dynamic and have to cover up their weaknesses by their powerful sidekicks.
