Abstract: This paper analyzes the moderating role of social capital between technological dynamism and entrepreneurial orientation, filling the gap in the process whereby company managers develop an entrepreneurial orientation from their environmental ‘enactment’. We analyze the way in which social capital dimensions exert a divergent influence on the relationship between technological dynamism and entrepreneurial orientation. The main contribution of this paper is to demonstrate how the effect of social capital modifies the influence of technological dynamism, depending on the social capital dimension analyzed.
