This article is about entrepreneurial teams and addresses specifically the relationship between the group value consensus and performance. It contributes to previous research on teams in three ways. First, this study addresses the effectiveness of team composition in two different tasks. By doing so, it lends insights into how to compose entrepreneurial teams for improved outcomes. Second, we look specifically at how value composition impacts team performance. Third, we investigate designed teams in a quasi-experimental setting as opposed to organically formed teams com- monly found in other team composition studies. Our study finds that value hetero- geneity is beneficial to external tasks while detrimental to internal tasks.
