Abstract

The current study aimed to identify the relationship between Perceived Social Support with A-Motivation and Mental Well-Being of Aspiring Entrepreneurs. The study used a quantitative research design for data collection. It employed the convenience sampling technique, gathering information from 300 participants, out of which 188 participants were selected using scales, viz. Multidimensional Scale 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 E-business 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 of Perceived Social Support, A-Motivation and Mental Well-Being was (α=0.778), (α=0.669) and (α=0.888). The Sig. (2-tailed) value for Mental Well-Being was 0.000.
