Abstract: 
There is wide acceptance of the precept that entrepreneurial orientation is associated with superior firm performance, and knowledge has been recognized as a key resource for preserving the competitive advantage. Enterprises must know what to do, how to do it, as well as when and where to do it. They must be able to identify and exploit opportunities. This study explains the relationship between entrepreneurial orientation (EO) and knowledge creation (KC). It uses a sample of 195 items from SMEs to explore the relationship between entrepreneurial and knowledge creation orientation. Entreprenurship orientation includes five dimensions: innovativeness, risk – taking, proactiveness, competitive aggressiveness and autonomy process, while the knowledge creation includes the following four processes: socialization, externalization, combination and internalization. The findings show the existence of a close relationship between entrepreneurial orientation and knowledge creation.
