Abstract: In this study, I explored the relevance of the entrepreneura??s goal orientation in determining the coping strategies used by the entrepreneur. Data from 157 entrepreneurs showed significant positive relationships between learning goal orientation and problem focused coping, as well as performance-avoid goal orientation and emotion-focused coping. The entrepreneura??s goal commitment was positively related to problem-focused coping and moderated the relationship between performance goal orientation and problem-focused coping. Problem-focused coping was positively related to venture performance, while emotion-focused coping was negatively related to the entrepreneura??s well-being. Results underscore the importance of studying goals and coping strategies of entrepreneurs. Academic and practical contributions of this study in the entrepreneurship literature are discussed.
