The purpose of this study was to assess the implications for Daejeon's business management by analyzing the impact on the management performance of human solidarity among CEOs of small and medium venture companies in Daejeon. From 20th March to 20th May 2018, 212 questionnaires were collected from CEOs of small and medium-sized venture companies in Daejeon for this study and verified using the SPSS statistics Analysis Program. As a result, the study confirmed that the "work" and "school" connection factors have positive effects on securing government projects, improving business management, acquiring the necessary information for business growth, and securing competitiveness in 4th industrial revolution era. On the other hand, the "Region or Kin-group" connection factor does not affect the management performance. The following implications were derived fromthese studies on sustainable growth and development of business in Daejeon. First, it requires a higher level of the CEO solidarity. Second, efforts aimed at building mutual trust among CEOs in Daejeon are needed to develop close relationships and strong connections. Third, each operating association established in Daejeon needs to develop various programs for building relationships among CEOs and operate programs to increase the chances of contact.
