Abstract

Introduction: In the last twenty years, the number of new ventures that show an international approach since from their inception has been strongly increased. These kind of ventures, defined as International New Ventures -(INV) (Oviatt and McDougall 1994), Born Global Companies ((Knight, 1997; Knight and Cavusgil, 1996; Madsen and Servais, 1997) or Global Start-Ups (Rialp et al. 2005; Jones and Coviello 2005), have attracted the attention of researchers for their different approach to internationalization that differs from the traditional models (Coviello and Jones 2004; Zahra and George 2002; Romanello R and Chiarvesio M (2019) Following Oviatt and McDougall (1994) we conceptualized INVs “…a business organization that, from inception, seeks to derive significant competitive advantage from the use of resources and the sale of outputs in multiple countries” (p. 49). Several variables have been considered in the international entrepreneurship (IE) as strategic factors explaining the growth and the profitability of INV. However, we have little knowledge about how some dimensions of strategic orientation, such as entrepreneurial and market orientation (respectively EO e MO), are interconnected with the international growth of IVN (Agndal, Chetty, & Wilson, 2008; Coviello, 2006; Prashantham & Birkinshaw, 2015).
