Abstract

In this study we examine the contingency value of entrepreneurial strategy making with a sample of technology-based new ventures in China's emerging economy. Our results show that the relationship between entrepreneurial strategy making and performance is moderated by both environmental factors and firm competences. Specifically, entrepreneurial strategy making has a positive relationship with performance when the environment is highly uncertain and when the firm has strong marketing competences.
