Corporate entrepreneurship can be considered important for organizational performance. While being recognized to be important for development of innovations and technologies of small and medium sized firms and for innovation/technology strategies of large firms, inter-organizational relationships in terms of networks and alliances have received limited research attention in the context of corporate entrepreneurship in general, and in corporate technological entrepreneurship in particular. This study developed and tested a model of alliance-driven corporate technological entrepreneurship activities that impact organizational performance. The model was tested on 226 usable responses from a mail survey data from a sample of manufacturing firms from Slovenia. The model indicates the value of engagement in strategic alliances for the development of corporate technological entrepreneurship activities and consequential performance improvements.
