In this paper, we study the emergence of three historical international new ventures, currently well-known Finnish forest industry companies Ahlström, Metsä Group, and UPM, through a microhistorical perspective. We build a model of the context embeddedness and behaviour of the INVs during the 1st global economy in the context of Finland and extend literatures on (i) INVs; (ii) historical context in international business (IB); and (iii) informal institutional embeddedness of international entrepreneurs.
