The current study examines the mediating role of innovation and entrepreneurial competencies in entrepreneurial orientation’s relationship with financial, social, and environmental performance. This research also determines the role of social ties in strengthening the association between innovation and entrepreneurial competencies with social, financial, and environmental performance. Using multi-source and time- lagged studies, the data was collected from 297 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Pakistan, and structural equation modeling was used to test direct, indirect, and moderating hypotheses. The findings show that entrepreneurial orientation, en- trepreneurial competencies, and innovation positively correlate with all the types of performance under investigation and confirm the mediating role of innovation and en- trepreneurial competencies. Additionally, social network ties strengthen innovation— financial performance, and entrepreneurial competencies—social performance relationship. This research proposes significant theoretical and managerial implica- tions by determining the impact of entrepreneurial orientation on SMEs in Pakistan.

Abstract

The current study examines the mediating role of innovation and entrepreneurial competencies in entrepreneurial orientation’s relationship with financial, social, and environmental performance. This research also determines the role of social ties in strengthening the association between innovation and entrepreneurial competencies with social, financial, and environmental performance. Using multi-source and time- lagged studies, the data was collected from 297 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Pakistan, and structural equation modeling was used to test direct, indirect, and moderating hypotheses. The findings show that entrepreneurial orientation, en- trepreneurial competencies, and innovation positively correlate with all the types of performance under investigation and confirm the mediating role of innovation and en- trepreneurial competencies. Additionally, social network ties strengthen innovation— financial performance, and entrepreneurial competencies—social performance relationship. This research proposes significant theoretical and managerial implica- tions by determining the impact of entrepreneurial orientation on SMEs in Pakistan.
