Abstract [en]

Drawing on the Network Theory, this research had the objective to analyse the influence of networks within the life cycle stages of a Born Global company. By developing a framework that consisted of a pre-inception phase, start-up phase and the growth phase, the study proposed to identify which types of networks were used within the development of the BG, and how they influenced on the internationalisation speed. By conducting an in-depth interview, data has been collected to be analysed as a single-case study. Our findings indicate that the company made active use of networks in every phase of its life cycle in terms of acquiring market knowledge, financial support and access to customers in which directly influenced in its internationalisation process and speed. Moreover, we observed that the characteristics of the entrepreneur, the product and also the mechanism of networking contributed to both of the development within the life cycle stages of the company as the internationalisation speed.
