Abstract

This paper is a review of past studies on corporate entrepreneurship and performance. The paper reviewed the concept of corporate entrepreneurship and its dimensions, benefits of corporate entrepreneurship and differences between corporate entrepreneurship and Start-up entrepreneuship. Relevant Theories and Models of corporate entrepreneuship were also reviewed.The paper revealed some of the outcomes of empirical studies on the relationship between corporate entrepreneurship and performance. From the study, it was clear that corporate entrepreneurship has a significant relationship with firm performance. Nevertheless, the results of past studies on the relationship between some dimensions of corporate entrepreneurship and performance are inconsistent, and hence, inconclusive. Also, most of the studies seem to be carried out in the Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (SMEs), therefore, creating a gap in other sectors of the economy.
