 Title: Emotional Intelligence in an Entrepreneurial context

Background: Emotional Intelligence (EI) has been said to matter twice as much as Intelligent Quotient (IQ) for predicting business success (Goleman, 1998b). This study addresses Emotional Intelligence in previously unexplored context in Sweden: entrepreneurship.

Purpose: The purpose of this research is to explain Emotional Intelligence and its possible relationship with the entrepreneur.

Hypothesis: Being an entrepreneur is positively related to EQ

Method: The study has a deductive research approach where the hypothesis is formed by the theoretical framework of Emotional Intelligence, providing an empirical framework that measures the concept in the entrepreneurial context and outlines linkages among the constructs. The study is conducted among members of the business organization Företagarna in Region Halland, Sweden, by the measurement instrument Emotional Intelligence Scale (EIS).

Conclusion: The assumptions derived from a theoretical perspective could be confirmed empirically. Being an entrepreneur is positively related to EQ.

Keywords: CEO, EI, EIS, EQ, Emotional Intelligence, Entrepreneurs, Entrepreneurship
