The main purpose of the study was to investigate the relationship between entrepreneurship orientation and business performance by conducting an empirical literature review. This aim was managed by examining the effects of the entrepreneurship orientation on the business performance being separated into the financial and non-financial dimensions. Entrepreneurship orientation and performance empirical studies selected from the literature were analysed according to the purpose of this study. The study showed that there was no consistency and clarity in the effects of entrepreneurship orientation on the financial and non-financial performance of businesses. However, it was understood from the literature that entrepreneurship orientation contributes directly or indirectly to business performance. In addition to this result, some empirical studies suggested that the positive effects of entrepreneurship orientation will not appear in a short period of time, but in a longer period of time.
