dc.description.abstractThe enhancement of corporate innovation performance is of paramount importance for sustainable development of businesses, as only by continuously improving innovation performance can companies maintain competitiveness in the market. The essence of innovation in the high-tech industry lies in the ongoing process of high-tech enterprises enhancing their innovation performance. Therefore, researching the innovation processes, models, and influencing factors of high-tech enterprises is a prerequisite for achieving innovation-driven development. Guangxi's high-tech enterprises face challenges related to their innovation capacity and the need to improve innovation quality. In comparison to the more developed central and eastern regions, western China is still in the phase of increasing the efficiency of innovation. Thus, researching how to enhance the innovation performance of enterprises in regions like Guangxi, Yunnan, and Guizhou holds practical significance. This study is based on the theories of innovation performance, knowledge management, and social capital. It constructs a theoretical model to examine the relationships between innovation performance, R&D investment, knowledge search, and institutional pressure. Relevant variables were measured, and a survey questionnaire was designed. Survey responses were collected from 448 senior management personnel in high-tech enterprises in Guangxi. Data analysis was carried out using structural equation modeling and data processing tools like SPSS and SMART-PLS. The research results reveal that certain direct factors were found to be significant. For instance, R&D investment has a positive impact on innovation performance and also on network construction and management capabilities. Both deep and broad knowledge searches positively influence these network capabilities. Additionally, network construction and management capabilities have a positive impact on innovation performance. The study also uncovered significant mediation effects, where R&D investment positively influences innovation performance through network construction and management capabilities. Furthermore, institutional pressure was found to have a significant moderating effect on the relationship between deep knowledge search and innovation performance. By integrating multiple theories, including innovation performance, knowledge management, and social capital, this study broadens its theoretical scope and value. It offers practical recommendations and underscores the critical role of internal capabilities in innovation performance. Specifically, it highlights the mediating role of enterprise network capability. In practical business management, enterprise network capability is indispensable for innovation, as it helps transform information search into innovation capability, enhancing innovation efficiency and optimizing innovation costs. While external environmental factors do play a role, innovation's core still resides within the company itself. Consequently, governments should not focus solely on increasing R&D funding, as an increase in R&D investment does not directly guarantee improved innovation performance.en
