This paper reports the findings of an exploratory study of sixty-five firms investigating the relationship between entrepreneurial firms and their use of strategic information technology. Younger, smaller, more entrepreneurial firms tended to focus on niche markets and were more concerned with sales growth and technical excellence than profitability. There was weak evidence that the more entrepreneurial firms adopted strategic information technology earlier than other firms and used the technology more consistently over the six years studied.
