Entrepreneurial orientation (EO) is a driver of firms’ innovation. The phenomenon of EO as a prerequisite for innovation has become a central focus of corporate entrepreneurship literature. Despite an abundance of research suggesting that innovation capability contributes to SMEs’ performance, little is known how dimensions of EO specifically influence SMEs’ innovation. Furthermore, although prior research has examined various factors that influence the EO– innovation relationship, few studies have address views how organizational learning influences the EO-innovation relationship in the SMEs context. Based on the literature review, our study attempts to fill this gap by postulating that entrepreneurial innovativeness, proactiveness and risk-taking are related to SMEs’ innovation and that organizational learning positively moderates the EO–innovation relationships.
