Exploration of born globals/International new ventures: Some evidence from the Australian wine industry

Wickramasekera, Rumintha & Bamberry, Geoff (2003) Exploration of born globals/International new ventures: Some evidence from the Australian wine industry. Australasian Journal of Regional Studies, 9(2), pp. 207-220.


ABSTRACT: Over the past decade some researchers have criticized the ‘stage’ models of internationalisation for failing to explain adequately the early internationalisation of certain firms which have been referred to as born globals. However, other researchers have, in turn, identified a number of limitations in the born global studies and have argued that their findings do not refute the evolutionary stage models of internationalisation. This paper explores the phenomenon of born globalness within the Australian wine industry. The findings support the view that the development of born globals does not negate the validity of the stage theories of internationalisation.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
