         In order to clarify the relationship between entrepreneurship, staff innovation behavior and enterprise performance, theoretical hypotheses were proposed based on the combination and summary of related studies in which entrepreneurship has a positive effect on the enterprise performance, and staff innovation behavior plays a mediating role in the process of the influence of entrepreneurship on enterprise performance. The questionnaire was designed using a maturity scale, and a total of 507 valid questionnaires were collected. Statistical analysis software SPSSS21.0 was used to conduct various types of analysis on the valid data collected, including descriptive statistics, reliability analysis, exploratory factor analysis (EFA), confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), correlation analysis, and regression analysis. The proposed theoretical model and hypotheses were verified concurrently. The data analysis results showed that all dimensions of the entrepreneurship have remarkably positive effects on the enterprise performance and that staff innovation behavior, in part, plays a mediating role between entrepreneurship and enterprise performance.
