Product Details

Synopsis
Drawing on empirical case-study research carried out in the Bangalore software industry, this book explores the role of network relationships in the internationalization of small knowledge-intensive firms. Using a conceptual framework, it looks at a range of key themes and their relationship to the internationalization of small firms. These include: networks; knowledge; and, technology. Highlighting the propensity of small knowledge-intensive firms to develop and leverage network relationships and thereby, the resourcefulness with which entrepreneurial firms can (and do) internationalize, this book is essential reading for academics and students with an interest in the intersection between international business and entrepreneurship.

Reviews
Dr Shameen Prashantham’s The Internationalization of Small Firms: A Strategic Entrepreneurship Perspective is a refreshing masterpiece on a subject that a few years ago was considered a contradiction in terms. Indeed, it used to be that MNEs played the international arena and SMEs catered to local markets. In this volume, the author confirms to us that the world has changed, as technology allows small players to have a big role in international markets. A welcome contribution to the literature. Professor Lèo-Paul Dana Founding Editor, Journal of International Entrepreneurship
