Traditional theory about international business suggests that companies first establish a solid home market and go global only in later stages of their life cycle. However, this view is challenged by research that shows that some firms internationalise quickly after start-up – so-called ‘born globals’. These firms are assumed to be strongly innovative and growth-oriented, and hence could well contribute to the economic and labour market recovery Europe is seeking after the global financial crisis. So far, little is known about the full economic potential of these companies and how best to support them. This study aims to close this knowledge gap by providing a summary of literature and secondary data to characterise born globals and pinpoint their main strengths and weaknesses as well as economic and labour market potential.

    Nacidas con vocación global: el potencial para la creación de empleo de las nuevas empresas internacionales - Resumen ejecutivo

    Autor o autores: 
    Eurofound
    La teoría tradicional acerca de las empresas internacionales plantea que las compañías procuran en primer lugar la consecución de un sólido mercado interior, y se «globalizan» únicamente en las etapas posteriores de su ciclo vital. Sin embargo, tal punto de vista queda en entredicho a la luz de los estudios que ponen de relieve que algunas empresas se internacionalizan con mayor rapidez tras su puesta en marcha. Son las denominadas «born globals», o empresas nacidas con vocación global. Se considera que son entidades de un fuerte carácter innovador y orientación al crecimiento y, por tanto, muy capaces de contribuir a la recuperación económica y del mercado de trabajo que busca Europa tras la crisis financiera mundial.
