Research Paper

Assessing the characteristics, determinants and spatial variations of internationalised new ventures in the UK. Research Paper No 56

This study focuses on internationalised new ventures, here defined as firms that have been trading for 5 years or fewer and which have already engaged in selling their goods and/or services abroad. The report presents analysis of data from the Longitudinal Small Business Survey that: 1) examines differences between internationalised and non-internationalised new ventures, 2) assesses the factors which determine whether a new firm is likely to engage in export activity early in its lifetime; and 3) maps the geographic distribution of these internationalised new ventures across the UK.
