Abstract [en]

In this study, we address two research questions: (1) Why are some SMEs (Small Medium Enterprise) more innovative than others? (2) What effect does innovativeness has on business performance? Accordingly, we draw on various theoretical perspectives to develop hypotheses that propose social capital orientation and market orientation as key antecedents to innovativeness, as well as a direct relationship between innovativeness and business performance. A model is devised and tested that examines these relationships in general. Findings confirm the validity of the model. Lastly, implications are offered on the antecedents and consequences of organizational innovativeness
