dc.description.abstractDespite the effort made by the government of Kenya to support the growth of SME sector by creating enabling environment through appropriate legal and regulatory procedures, and in spite the fact that banks have recently made micro-credit accessible to MSEs (MESPT, 2011), there is no indication that the sector is growing. Empirical evidence shows that most of these enterprises fail due to poor/lack of access to finance. Access to venture capital by the small and medium enterprises could be a plausible alternative but unfortunately research has pointed out that majority of the enterprises do not access venture capital financing, which is considered an important option for small and medium enterprises trying to grow. This study therefore sought to investigate the effect of entrepreneur’s innovativeness on access to venture capital by small and medium enterprises in Kenya. The study adopted the explanatory non-experimental research design and positivism philosophy guided the study. Target population of the study was 334 Small and medium size enterprises ranked by KPMG between 2008 and 2017 in their annual survey. Proportionate random sampling technique was used to select the firms. Data was collected by use of questionnaire, using drop and pick method. Both descriptive statistics and inferential statistics were used to analyze the data. Nested multinomial logit model was used. The results reveal that the influence of an entrepreneur’s innovativeness on access to venture capital financing is statistically significant. From the findings, it is recommended that SMEs should continue investing in enhancing entrepreneurial innovativeness as it increases the propensity of their enterprises from accessing venture capital financingen_US
