Abstract

The main purpose of this study is to examine the impact of institutional entrepreneurship and innovativeness on productivity of entrepreneurship ventures particularly those situated in institutions of higher learning in Nigeria. Giving that institutions are expanding beyond their main campuses admitting more students to different satellite campuses with different levels of infrastructures, skills, capabilities and necessities, it sought to find out if there was any significant improvement in business productivity by reason of introduction of innovation in entrepreneurs activities. This study formulated four hypotheses to find the level of relationship among the investigated variables. In order to test the hypotheses, the survey research method was used in a cross sectional design through the use of comprehensive questionnaires which were distributed to entrepreneurs in four tertiary institutions campuses situated in Lagos state. Results from regression analysis finds that innovation adaptation has a significant impact on labor and material productivity. In view of this, the researchers suggested that entrepreneurs should formulate and coordinate policies that will encourage these ideas to be made manifest in the labour capabilities of the enterprises. Hence, findings from this study will be useful for entrepreneurs who do not have adequate capacity to embrace innovation so as to produce at optimum capacity and gain competitive advantage as it would inform them of the innovation-enhancing role of productivity.
