Based on theoretical findings found in literature on strategic and knowledge management, this study develops a model of the links among organizational learning, innovation, and company performance. The derived constructs are validated using a sample of high-tech ventures. The same sample serves to test the model. The findings indicate a positive relationship among organizational learning, innovation, and company performance. The age of the company moderates these results, but its size does not. This thesis provides comments describing how to capture and share knowledge, for the benefit of new venture managers.
