David Sergon, Bernard K. Nassiuma, Peter Omboto


This study was anchored on the diffusion of innovation theory to analyze the influence of information technology adoption on a firms performance. The study identified information technology adoption (ICT) as a mediator in the relationship between entrepreneurial environment and entertainment enterprise’ performance. A post-positivism research philosophy anchored on a deductive research approach and a cross-sectional time horizon was employed. The study target was bars and night club enterprises in Nakuru town. Slovins’ formula was used to determine the study sample size. A probability sampling technique aided in selecting respondents. Primary data was captured in a questionnaire. Data analysis comprises descriptive and inferential statistics. Findings show that bars and nightclubs had adopted low-end technology tools and applications. The study concludes that technology adoption mediates in the relationship between external contexts of entrepreneurial environment and enterprise performance (?=-.0227, p=.000). The study recommends an analysis of entertainment enterprise needs by stakeholders in the ICT sector in order to support enhanced ICT adoption.
