Abstract in different language: The study focused on moderating effect of cross-border entrepreneurship on the relationship between innovation and firm growth using medium scale techno-based manufacturing firms in South-West geo-political zone of Nigeria. Beyond determining this general objective, the study also sought to establish relationship between innovation (exploration and exploitation) and firm growth. Mail questionnaire was administered on 400 sample size. Correlation, Multiple-regression analysis and Ordinal Linear-by-Linear Association Model was conducted using SPSS 25 to strengthen the findings. The findings show high moderating effect of internationalization on the high positive relationship between innovation and firm growth. The findings are inconsistent with previous findings. The study suggests that techno-based manufacturing firms can embark and successfully compete internationally through innovative activities in order to achieve high growth of their firms.
