Abstract

While there are many studies concerning internationalized small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), examination of a special type of internationalized small firm, notably the micromultinational (mMNE) is particularly scant. Drawing on the resource-based view and an in-depth case study analysis of 15 firms in Scotland, the chapter discusses core rigidities that may inhibit growth of mMNEs.
