Current Organisation

Igor Laine, D.Sc. (Econ.) earned his doctoral degree from Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT), Finland in November 2016. His doctoral dissertation entitled Institution-based View of Entrepreneurial Internationalization was approved with distinction and reflects his research interests at the intersection of international business and entrepreneurship with a particular focus on developing economies. At LUT, he is also responsible for teaching several bachelor- and master-level courses including Internationalisation of the Firm, Cross-cultural issues in International Business and International Business Essentials.

Research Interest
International new ventures being exposed to liabilities of newness, smallness and foreignness find themselves to be disadvantaged comparing to more established local firms. Regardless of this statement, there is a growing population of INVs in various industries all over the world. Traditional IB theories could not provide us with substantial answer to this emergent phenomenon so far, thus giving us opportunity to employ new perspectives while researching this area. To my mind the best approach to describe the existence and behavior of INV is a combination of resource-based, industry and institutional perspectives, while giving a central role to entrepreneur in charge.
