The purposes of this research are to validate the construct of Entrepreneurial Marketing Orientation (EMO), evaluate the relationship between EMO and market performance and analyze firm characteristics that are related to higher levels of EMO. The data consisted of 545 Italian SMEs with limited liability. We use structural equation modelling to test the construct validity and the relationship between EMO and market performance. Then, we analyze whether EMO is related to certain firm characteristics. The results demonstrate a new operationalization of EMO and a positive relationship between this and market performance. Also, product type and firm objectives are the characteristics that seem to have higher levels of EMO. In the discussion section, we report some advice for owners, managers and consultants, as well as limitations of this study and potential ideas for future research.
