Abstract We examine the role of learning firm-specific advantages of small and medium size (SME) service firms in their internationalization. We focus on technical services that have received limited scholarly attention. We theorize that innovative born global firms build a set of capabilities in market, internal and relational learning that will provide new knowledge configurations to undertake technical and administrative innovations. Adopting an organizational sub-system view, we posit that m...

Abstract Additive manufacturing (AM) is an emergent technology that is shifting the nature of production, sourcing, and other value-chain activities. AM has the potential to substantially disrupt the structure and operations of international business. In this paper, we leverage the global factory concept (e.g., Buckley & Ghauri, 2004) to frame our discussion of the likely impact of AM on global production. We identify and conceptualize specific variables and relationships to offer a nuanced expl...

We propose a research investigation on migrant-own businesses that undertake international marketing ventures. Migrant-owned firms contribute substantially to their adopted countries, and many launch international ventures, targeting their home countries and other international markets (Kerr and Kerr 2016; Light 2010; Saxenian 2002; OECD 2011; United Nations 2016; USAID 2009).

In this editorial for the Special Issue on International Entrepreneurship, we inter-relate key concepts about the pursuit of opportunities from the entrepreneurship and international business literatures. In doing so, we consider the assessment of opportunities as an individual-level cognitive activity, the construction of opportunity as a firm-level innovative activity and the shaping of opportunity as an institutional-level structuring activity. We then extend the discussion to explore the not...

We highlight the roles of knowledge and capabilities for early internationalization and success in international markets. Results from a survey-based study suggest born global firms have a distinctive mix of orientations and strategies that allow them to succeed in international markets. Specifically, resea...

This article answers the following question: what basic issues must Spanish companies have in mind when they internationalise towards developing economies? With that aim, the authors conducted a case study and interviewed consultants from Spain and Senegal with offices in one or both countries and with an extensive experience on facilitating SMEs’ internationalization to Africa and Senegal in particular. As a result, gaps and blind spots of the Spanish SMEs in the process of internationalisation...
