Abstract

The aim of this paper is to develop a conceptual model on strategic capabilities that causes the firm to internationalize at a high speed. We surmise that the empirical discovery of a set of dynamic capabilities will empower these firms to develop cutting-edge knowledge-intensive products, paving the way for their accelerated market entry. The proposed model of the factors on born global's dynamic capabilities will be a set of practical guidelines for young SMEs, business owners, and top management that have yet to internationalize and aim to export their products or services into foreign markets. This study will contribute to new knowledge and valuable insights that will benefit firms in the context of rapid internationalization. Additionally, the findings shall also serve as valuable input for policymakers to facilitate exports and re-evaluate policies to give firms the extra edge in their ability to export and grow internationally.
