The current study aimed to identify the relationship between Perceived Social Support with AMotivation and Mental Well-Being of Aspiring Entrepreneurs. The study used a quantitative research

of Perceived Social Support (MSPSS), Work Extrinsic and Intrinsic Motivation Scale (WEIMS) and The
Warwick–Edinburgh Mental Well-Being Scale (WEMWBS). Participants’ age lay between 16 and 45.
Data was collected from people, who belonged to a business-related educational background, with
start-ups that reached their operational stage such as incubation centers, who aimed to start an Ebusiness and had social media accounts with minimum 50 followers, and who enrolled in the institutes
within premised of Karachi. The procedure began by taking permission from higher authorities and
distributing survey forms to individuals. The findings of this study revealed a significant weak positive
relationship between Perceived Social Support and Mental Well-Being of Aspiring Entrepreneurs, and
no relationship was determined between Perceived Social Support and A-Motivation. The alpha value
