Abstract [en]

In this thesis, we have investigated what skill sets entrepreneurs apply in order to become entrepreneurs, how entrepreneurs are influenced by globalisation and how they overcome societal barriers in their countries.

The thesis consists of case studies with entrepreneurs from three firms in China, Lebanon and Sweden. It examines the societal barriers in each country, as well as what skill sets helped the entrepreneurs overcome these barriers.

We found that they were all to a high degree utilising the Internet and the possibil-ity of interacting with the global world. Their societal barriers differed, but the ways in which they overcame them did not differ significantly. In our limited study, the more difficult the local barrier is, the more global the firm is.

We would infer from our analysis that entrepreneurs are influenced both by the global society and their national society. The higher the societal barriers, the more skills were needed to overcome them.
