The main objective of this study is to explore the relationship between internal entrepreneurship meaning entrepreneurial activities in the existing organization and organizational features. In this study the intrapreneurship construct includes four distinct dimensions: innovativeness, new business venturing, self-renewal and proactiveness. The relationship between internal entrepreneurship and organizational features of firms has been investigated through a field research applied on the manufacturer firms of Erzurum. 50 firms correctly responded to the questionnaires and the responses were seen as an enough number in which a statistical tool can be implemented. The research sample was about 50 firms which represent different sectors and businesses. We have employed quantitative research techniques in the study. This study results suggest that intra-organizational determinants have statistically significant impact on the intrapreneurship activities of the firms. These organizational determinants are managerial supports, internal communication, formal control and organizational values.
