Nordic Born Globals

Globalisation has affected the internationalisation of business activities profoundly in recent decades. This is also the case when it comes to new enterprises, an increasing number of which are said to be internationally oriented from early on. International entrepreneurship and the phenomenon of born globals have attracted considerable attention from policy makers and academia alike,28 and for good reasons: if the conventional incremental internationalisation process of firms is giving way to early and rapid internationalisation paths of new enterprises, new policies may be needed, and studies documenting the phenomenon will be in demand to inform policy making.
