Abstract

This study investigated the extent to which entrepreneurial orientation can bring about the growth of SMEs in Bayelsa State. Innovativeness, risk-taking and proactiveness were used as dimensions of entrepreneurial orientation. One hundred and fifty copies of questionnaire were distributed to three local governments in Bayelsa State which are Yenagoa, Kolokuma/Opukuma and Brass LGAs. Our findings show that entrepreneurship orientation has significant effect on SME growth in Bayelsa State. The study further recommended a mental shift from indigenes, a new orientation that would make them depend less on political cakes and encourage their entrepreneurial mindset. This was suggested to keep the youths out of crime and juvenile delinquency.

 Key words: entrepreneurship orientation, innovation, risk-taking, proactiveness, SME,                  growth
