A number of SME managers among with some collaborators and partners involved in the project were interviewed.

Scholars assert that firms with a strong entrepreneurial orientation (EO) should enjoy an advantage in foreign market entry. However, extant theory, particularly the dominant logic and adaptation frameworks, as well as supporting empirical research outside the domain of foreign market entry, suggests that the positive impact of a strong EO on foreign market entry is likely to be situational. Per the dynamic capabilities perspective, the authors first propose that marketing program adaptation (MP...

To address recent calls for a more nuanced understanding of the role of uncertainty in entrepreneurial processes, we distinguish between cross-sectional uncertainty, which arises from the uneven dispersion of knowledge across people and places, and longitudinal uncertainty, which arises from the dispersion of knowledge across time. We argue that new venture team (NVT) sociobehavioral integration (the extent to which NVT members function as a team), NVT polychronicity (the extent to which NVT mem...

Academic research is increasingly emphasizing the critical role of business models (BMs) and business model innovation (BMI) in the international entrepreneurship (IE) domain, yet empirical studies on the topic are quite limited. This study demo0nstrates the role of BMI and entrepreneurial orientation (EO) in the internationalization of small-and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Specifically, we explored the mediating role of BMI in the relationship between EO and international performance among...

This is a cross-cultural study that explores the relationship between entrepreneurs’ social intelligence and firm performance in six countries (China, Malaysia, Bangladesh, France, Ireland, and Turkey). These firms were founded during the 7 years preceding the study. Data for this study were collected with questionnaires from three managers of each firm who rated their founding CEOs on social intelligence and performance of their firms. Data from each firm were averaged. Data analyses in each sa...

This study explores the under-researched yet increasingly important process of collective international opportunity recognition. Collective opportunities are created through the interaction and joint acts of several firms and, thus, involve a complex merging of different perspectives and interests. This study analyses why some entrepreneurs recognise collective opportunities in foreign markets while others do not. The empirical data comprise qualitative interviews with 20 representatives of Finn...

Generating international sales with high intensity and at an early point in time can significantly enhance a new venture’s performance and growth potential. This paper draws on human capital theory to develop and empirically test a model proposing that entrepreneurs’ prior founding experience enhances new ventures’ international sales intensity, while their prior domestic work experience diminishes such sales intensity. Further, our model proposes that prior founding and domestic work experience...

In this study, we examine the impact of the founders’ level of international entrepreneurial orientation (IEO) on the export degree and scope of early internationalizing firms (EIFs). Since the emergence of international entrepreneurship (IE) as a research field, theoretical knowledge on the performance determinants of EIFs remains limited. Those studies that have examined the performance determinants of EIFs predominantly focused on subjective performance measures and thus fall short in capturi...

This article conducts an in-depth investigation of entrepreneurial opportunity recognition in an international new venture (INV) during the time period before the organizational emergence. While doing so, the study applies a strategic orientation (SO) approach that seems to provide the possibility of observing firm activities from multiple perspectives. A qualitative and interpretive method is used for this purpose. The findings of this study support the notion that the phase before organization...
