Entrepreneurial teams are increasingly prevalent. An important stage in new venture formation involves the recruitment and retention of team members, characterised by changes in the membership of the ET. ET turnover involves members joining or leaving the team, which could have positive or negative effects on the team and the firm. Spousal Entrepreneurial Teams (SET) are a frequently occurring, yet unique type of ET, with very distinct characteristics and dynamics. In an SET turnover is likely to be have different meanings and effects than in Other Entrepreneurial Teams. This research asks: What influences members joining and leaving entrepreneurial teams? And are SET different? Using data from 561 young firms over X years, we find significant differences between SET and NSET. Specifically, we find X.
