Tanzania’s Small-to-Medium Enterprise (SME) ventures make an important contribution to the nation’s economic development. Recent years have seen advertising) rapid growth of SMEs in Tanzania’s private health care system however sustained operational and financial pressures are leading to their failure to survive beyond the initial five years of operation. Little is known about the link between high healthcare SME failure rates and healthcare entrepreneurs and managers’ entrepreneurial performance. There is also a lack of published research exploring the phenomenon of entrepreneurial performance from the perspective of SME managers themselves. This study therefore aims to identify the characteristics of, and the factors that impact on, a purposive sample of private healthcare SMEs registered to practice in the Dares Salaam District of Tanzania.
