Abstract: Within the context of an increasing speed of internationalisation of many firms, this article intends to identify initiating forces and success factors of born global firms in a conceptual way. After reviewing the relevant literature, a conceptual framework is developed which integrates the positions of the market-based and the resource-based views. Based on this framework, hypotheses about initiating forces and success factors of born global firms are derived. Moreover, the impact of moderating management instruments – such as human resource management, coordination and subsidiary control – are discussed.
