The literature on international business and international entrepreneurship provides multiple explanations for early internationalization. Using fuzzy-set qualitative comparative analysis, this study examines the antecedents of early internationalization for small firms based in a small economy, focusing on entrepreneurs’ attitudes toward the economic opportunities available in their domestic market, the risk of internationalizing, and the profitability of entering foreign markets. Three additio...

We investigate the conditions under which opportunism occurs in international market entry. Examining 133 entries into new markets by 38 Chinese exporters, we uncover instances of opportunistic behaviour on the part of importers. We study five variables affecting such behaviour: managerial experience, market entry share, market distance, young age, and network size. While we find no single variable on its own associated with opportunism, we do find that in concert they form five configurations o...

Abstract This study analyzes the known antecedents of firm performance in emerging markets. It proposes a configurational approach for identifying the combinations of antecedents that are equifinally linked to high performance under different levels of institutional voids. The paper examines a sample of 200 firms based in 12 economies, focusing on the role of family management, vertical integration, firm size, internationalization and collaboration with other organizations. This study extends th...

Abstract The literature on high-tech international new ventures (INVs) has failed to consider the precursors of service advantage within the strategy interplay for approaching new markets overseas. Services account for an increasingly crucial component, especially in high-tech manufacturing sector. Attaining competitive advantage in international markets is contingent upon the level of service the firm offers to its customers. Building on the resource-based view, this study advances the literatu...

Abstract Competing theories explain the timing of internationalization and its implications. In this study, we propose that the timing stems from complex combinations of drivers, and provide a typology of strategic types of internationalization in relation to these drivers: entrepreneurial, serendipitous, and strategic internationalization. We discuss how these strategic types affect the subsequent outcomes of internationalization. Strategic internationalizers choose markets and entry modes usin...

This paper studies the effects of state fragility and economic development on necessity and opportunity-based individual entrepreneurial efforts. We contribute to the literature on the contextual determinants of entrepreneurship by examining multilevel data on 956,925 individuals from 51 countries for the period of 2005–2013. We show that state fragility has a positive effect on necessity-based entrepreneurial efforts while hindering opportunity-based efforts. Our findings illustrate that the le...

This study examines how so-called born micromultinationals multinationalize. Existing theoretical frameworks do not capture the multinationalization of young and small firms because of the literature gap separating studies on born globals and international new ventures from the research on multinational enterprises. However, firms go beyond accelerated internationalization and engage in accelerated multinationalization. Born micromultinationals invest and operate in multiple countries from, or s...

This study examines the sales performance of agribusinesses based in the humid tropics of Latin America. Its focus is on strategic positioning and specific functional areas, ranging from marketing to human resources and purchasing. This paper contributes to the literature through a novel methodological approach, a configurational angle, which allows for the identification of multiple causal explanations for consistently good sales performance. It also advances the research agenda on Latin Americ...
