“The entrepreneurial orientation-performance relationship among new technology-based firms: Evidence from East Asia”
Most extant research on the performance implications of entrepreneurial orientation (EO) has focused on established firms and on firm-specific andorganizational factors. We study the performance effects of EO sub-dimensions on the performance of new technology-based firms (NTBFs) and byexamining environmental uncertainty, which is related to national institutional development, as an important boundary condition in an East Asian context.We analyze survey data from 2,023 new technology-based firms (NTBFs) in China, South Korea and Japan and find that while the NTBFs’ performance ispositively related to their entrepreneurial behavior, it is negatively related to their managerial attitude towards risk-taking. Furthermore, the positiveperformance effect of entrepreneurial behavior is weakened by environmental uncertainty, which is higher in China than in South Korea and Japan. Ourfindings suggest that for NTBFs, the performance implications of EO dimensions need to be studied separately.
