The paper aims to present the most important features of technological entrepreneurship, both in industrial and non-industrial organisations, and its important role in organisational development. The conceptual model used to describe our approach is The Balanced Scorecard, with a focus on learning and growth perspective. Within this view, a set of specific indicators is proposed in order to assess the performance of technological entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship. The result will reflect entrepreneur’s perspective, internal innovative processes, innovation and growth of an organization.
