A causal relationship among key critical success factors of successful entrepreneurs in Thailand is proposed. A new business innovation management model is established using data sampling of 250 successful entrepreneurs from various industry sectors in Thailand. The data were analyzed by performing mean, standard deviation calculations, factor analysis and causal factors affected by LISREL program. Quantitative results showed that the model is consistent with empirical data.
