Nowadays, knowledge becomes more and more important in the world, especially in the business world, the social economy transfers from matter-based economy to knowledge-based economy. Knowledge management (KM) has been regarded as one of the strategic methods that most strategies can lead to increases in firms' profits. Therefore, one of the main motivations for a firm to pursue knowledge management initiatives is the improvement of firm effectiveness. In fact, the ability to create and apply new knowledge has been considered as one of the main sources of competitive advantages of the firms. Moreover, knowledge creation has close relationships with firm performance through the impact on orientations and strategies of the firm.  According to Yong-Hui Li et al. (2006), knowledge creation process facilitates entrepreneurial orientation to convert into knowledge assets shared by organizational members and result in improving firm performance. In addition, Yong-Hui Li et al. (2008) stated that knowledge creation process also transfers new venture strategy into knowledge assets shared by organizational members to achieve firm performance. Based on Nonaka's theory of knowledge creation process and the previous studies, this study examines relationships among entrepreneurial orientation, new venture strategy, knowledge creation and firm performance. The purpose of this study is to gain a better understanding of the relationships and to get a better understanding of the relationships in new ventures in Viet Nam. Developing and testing hypotheses by using survey data from 163 entrepreneurs of new ventures in Viet Nam. This study employed SPSS 16.0 to analyze the collected data to test the relationships among factors and all items require seven-point Likert-scale. The results indicate the positive relationships among knowledge creation, new venture strategy, entrepreneurial orientation and firm performance.
