dc.description.abstractThe objective of the study was to examine the effect of entrepreneurs’ risk-taking propensity on firm performance and the moderating role of managerial network ties on this relationship in a sub-Saharan economy. This theoretically derived research model is empirically validated using survey data from 298 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Ghana. The study’s empirical findings are that high levels of entrepreneurs’ risk-taking propensity enhance firm performance. This relationship is amplified when entrepreneurs cultivate stronger business, political and community network ties.en
