Enterprises with well-developed entrepreneurial capabilities are able to sustain growth and innovation, which are critical competitive advantages in the 21st century. The purpose of this article was to determine whether the salient organisational factors, identified in international corporate entrepreneurship (CE) literature, that nurture CE capability are applicable in the South African context. A cross- sectional telephone survey of 315 South African companies indicated that the strategic leadership of the enterprise should support CE, encourage autonomy and provide rewards for entrepreneurial behaviour to strengthen CE capability.
