This research was conducted on entreprenuers in Mataram City. This type of research is quantitative research. The analysis tool uses PLS analysis. It was found that personality has a significant direct and indirect influence on business innovation and business growth at a 10 percent test alpha. The sociological factors have a significant influence on alpha 5.00%, both directly and indirectly on innovation and business growth. Environmental factors are empirically ignored because they do not have a significant direct and indirect influence on business innovation and business growth.
