The aim of this study is to analyze the impact of entrepreneurs’ social skills on the social network and tacit knowledge acquisition. The conclusion of the study indicates that entrepreneurs’ social skills including impression management and social perception influence fostering social networks by promoting face-to-face interactions to understand reactions, reciprocity and even motives of others. The impact of entrepreneurs’ social skills on tacit knowledge acquisition is further determined by strong social networks and preserving affable business relations of an entrepreneurial firm.
