    Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference articleScientific


    In this study, we analyse the internationalisation performance of Finnish innovative firms. These companies are said to be the driving force for economy. Innovativeness is enhanced in several ways in the economy, and new policy measures are introduced. Our focus is to identify these innovative companies, born globals in particular, and have a closer examination of innovation's effect on these companies' internationalisation. Born globals are relatively new phenomena, and they are quite often considered to be highly innovative and also follow rapid internationalisation. This is one of the reasons why they caught our interest in the discussion of innovation and firm internationalisation.
