The aim of this study was to investigate utility of team roles model in predicting team satisfaction in Croatian startups and to investigate psychometric properties of those two questionnaires which were until now not known. Startups are defined as small companies which offer products so inovative that they create a market of their own and they make use of IT in creative ways. Team Roles Questionnaire by Francis and Young (1992) and Team Satisfaction Questionnaire (Senior, 1997) were used in this study. 13 Croatian startups, with total of 51 emplyees have participated in this study. Team Roles Questionnaire has proven to be of very low psychometric properties – reliabilty of subscales was as low as α=.359 which forced the author to remove from further analysis four out of ten subscales in questionnaire. Team Satisfaction Questionnaire showed properties similiar to those reported by Senior (1997) and we were able to position participating startups in two dimensional space. This dimensions were interpreted as Organizational Climate and Work Tasks. No correlation between team satisfation and level of team roles in startups was found. On the other hand, significant correlation between variance of team roles and first dimension was found and it contradicts team roles model. It is argued that team roles model is not useful for prediction of team satisfaction.
