International Journal of Services, Economics and Management (IJSEM), Vol. 11, No. 3, 2020

Abstract: This study examines the phenomenon of early internationalisation in born globals from emerging markets. While the domain has gained attention in recent years, the literature is still in its infancy as to how born globals from emerging markets compete in high technology sectors. This study draws on the dynamic capabilities view (DCV) to empirically examine how international entrepreneurial culture (IEC) shapes innovation differentiation strategy, and how each drive early internationalisation under varying levels of market turbulence. AMOS is used to conduct a confirmatory factor analysis and estimate a structural model, using a sample of 286 high technology born globals from India. The findings indicate that IEC supports innovation differentiation and early internationalisation. The findings also confirm the usefulness of IEC toward early internationalisation when entering turbulent markets. These findings offer meaningful implications for the dynamic capabilities literature as born globals harness an IEC to accelerate their internationalisation activities.
