This study seeks to explore the international entrepreneurial orientation – international performance association taking into account contingency and configuration examinations including environmental hostility and political behavior. The evidence draws from activities on 113 US and 207 Greek internationalised firms. Results show that there is a direct positive association between international entrepreneurial orientation and performance in both samples. While there is no supporting evidence for contingency associations, the results suggest that the configurational hypothesis receives support in the Greek sample. This is seemingly the first research that provides such evidence in the international entrepreneurship literature. Research and managerial implications are discussed.
