Current Organisation
International Business and Entrepreneurship (IBE) (Superior organisation: LUT School of Business and Management)

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.
