Jinjiang City, where private economy is prospering, is famous for its Jinjiang Model. The Jinjiang Model is characteristic with its prevalence of entrepreneurial team activity. Most of the past studies on Jinjiang Model were conducted from macro-economic perspective, lacking entrepreneurial perspective. In order to understand the situation of Jinjiang enterprises better, this study attempts to explore the characteristic of Jinjiang entrepreneurial activity from the perspective of entrepreneurial teams.There were three stages in this study. At the first stage, we reviewed literature about entrepreneurial teams and the Jinjiang Model. At the second stage, interview and case study were conducted with 31 local companies and their founders or senior managers in Jinjiang City. At the third stage, 29 entrepreneurial teams in Jinjiang City were surveyed by questionnaires.The study showed the following:(1) Family factor had significant effects on entrepreneurial team cohesion. The cohesion in entrepreneurial teams of family enterprises was higher than those of non-family enterprises. However family factor had no significant effects on entrepreneurial performance.(2) Team heterogeneity had significant positive effects on entrepreneurial team-cooperation, but only partial influence on entrepreneurial performance.(3) Prior entrepreneurial experience, experience in the same or a related industry and teamwork experience of entrepreneurial teams had no influence on entrepreneurial performance.(4) Team-cooperation had significant effects on the relationship between goal and task interdependence and entrepreneurial performance. Both goal and task interdependence affected team-cooperation and then entrepreneurial performance.(5) Jinjiang enterprise founders cooperated well in entrepreneurial teams. As a whole, team-cooperation level was high in Jinjiang entrepreneurial teams.
