Abstract

Among Finnish SMEs, there are many wonderful examples of successful breakthroughs into the international markets - and behind these are stories of persistence and risk taking, mistakes, strokes of luck, expertise and amazing experiences. International markets can open out in a variety of ways - sometimes a company proceeds along its path of internationalisation according to detailed plans, in others quick trials and reversals are the most effective way of moving forward. The strength of SMEs lies in their flexibility and ability to react, as well as in their speed at learning anew. The publication, 'Tarinoita kansainvälistymisen poluilta'- 'Stories along the internationalisation path - Internationalisation of an SME - successes and challenges', highlights the diversity of the internationalisation of SMEs. Its cases describe the steps taken in the internationalisation process by five companies, the choices they have made, and the background to their challenges and successes. The following table sums up the five cases.We have learned of these cases through DIMECC REBUS programme (www.dimecc.com/dimecc-services/rebus/) and VALIT project (www.valit.fi). The cases are presented in the following table.
