Abstract

Earlier studies consider entrepreneurial orientation and entrepreneurial competencies as essential factors in achieving better enterprise performance. This research investigated the effect of entrepreneurial orientation in terms of (a) creativity and innovativeness, (b) risk-taking propensity, (c) proactiveness, and (d) autonomy on entrepreneurial competencies and enterprise performance. The respondents of this study were the micro-enterprise business owners who operate in Lipa City. This study utilized a quantitative research approach with a descriptive and causal research design method. Multiple regression was used to analyze the results. The findings revealed that entrepreneurial orientation significantly affects micro-enterprise performance.
