This study of 196 small high-technology firms embraces the areas of the internationalization of entrepreneurially led firms and the early stages of the international growth and development of high-technology firms. The author's conceptual stance is that the early internationalization of small firms should be viewed as an holistic process, that is, one in which interrelated and even integrated decisions and processes combine to accomplish a firm's individual pattern of internationalization. The study explores firms' patterns of international development through their establishment of cross-border activity in key value chains and associated service activities.
