Abstract / Summary

This paper aims to explore the role and impact of entrepreneurs's social networks on the internationalisation of "Born Global" firms. In particular, its de-internationalisation process. The research is based on a case study approach and adopts a series of face to face and online qualitative longitudinal interviews. It provides some useful insights into the relationship management of "Born Global" entrepreneurs and unveils some negative impacts of social networks on the initiation of 'de-internationalisation'. The study reveals the importance of online social networks, high-tech communications and contemporary management techniques for "Born Global" entrepreneurs.
