The objective of the present study is to analyse the role played by the entrepreneurial culture of the organization and the value and uniqueness of employee knowledge (human capital) in generating innovation. This research has been conducted with a sample of companies in the most innovative sectors of Spanish industry, applying the Partial Least Squares (PLS) technique. The results demonstrate significant relationships between the value and uniqueness of the individual employee knowledge and company innovation. An entrepreneurial culture is found to act as a moderating variable, such that the influence on innovation exerted by the value of the knowledge possessed by employees is greater with this type of company culture. © 2010 ACEDE.
