Abstract: Entrepreneurs' social capital is one of the key factors for success of enterprise innovation. The resources mobilised by entrepreneurs through networks provide guarantees for enterprise innovation. However, the theory of entrepreneurs' social capital is still not mature enough and needs to be re-examined and clarified through empirical research. Based on the empirical study of 173 private enterprises, this paper explores the moderating effect of entrepreneurship on the relationship between entrepreneurs' social capital and dynamic ability. It is found that the structural dimension of positive regulation of entrepreneurship has no moderating effect on the dynamic capabilities of technology and the market. Meanwhile, entrepreneurship plays a positive moderating role in the relationship dimension, in the cognitive dimension of entrepreneurs' social capital, in the technological dynamic capabilities and in the market dynamic capabilities of enterprise. Effective resource mobilisation of entrepreneurs' social capital is essential to maintain sustainable development of organisational dynamic capacity.
