To attain superior venture performance, entrepreneurs need to extend their networks by engaging many heterogeneous partners and simultaneously casually seeking common goals between their new ventures and these partners. A critical network mechanism underlies the associations between entrepreneurial decision-making logics, namely effectuation and causation, and entrepreneurial performance. Two network attributes—network heterogeneity and shared goal—play a key role in such a mechanism. Specifically, network heterogeneity mediates the effect of effectuation on entrepreneurial performance, while shared goal not only mediates the effect of causation on entrepreneurial performance but also moderates the network heterogeneity–performance association.
