There is empirical data that illustrate that entrepreneurial activity and economic growth have a positive correlation. This study discusses the importance of corporate entrepreneurs in organisations, and the need to retain them in the organisation to continue leveraging on their skills.Previous research on staff retention focussed mainly on the environment, rewards, and role ambiguity. This study goes further by using previous corporate entrepreneurship models to test for staff retention.A quantitative approach was taken, using a questionnaire that tested corporate entrepreneurs. The Questionnaire had organisational factors (independent variables) on corporate entrepreneurship and the dependent variable. The population consisted of 150 corporate entrepreneurs from a South African company which has branches in South Africa, Korea, China and Japan.The results indicated that the autonomy and organisational boundaries has the highest impact with regards to corporate entrepreneurs staying with the organisation.
