Corporate entrepreneurship has been emphasised as the key for companies in an emerging economy to revitalise, reconfigure resources and transform into market-orientated firms that are ready to compete in the global economy. A first-phase closed questionnaire survey is conducted to verify the presence and strength of entrepreneurial orientation among firms in the greater Johannesburg area. The second-phase of the study is based on 203 respondents, where data on organisational elements is regressed on various firm performance outcomes. The results indicate several significant and positive correlations between elements of pro-entrepreneurship architecture, the firm's competitive capability and growth indicators. The study has important implications for South African firms where the presence of an entrepreneurial orientation and pro-entrepreneurship architecture can be critical for growth, profitability and survival.
