This study seeks to extend our understanding of how organizational structure moderates the relationship between entrepreneurial orientation (EO) and firm performance. Both EO and organizational structure are conceptualized as multidimensional constructs. Using a sample of high growth new ventures, the theoretical implications of organizational structural control, formalization, centralization, and liaison devices upon the relationships between each individual dimension of EO and firm performance are tested.
