Abstract

Purpose
This paper analyses born globals and business incubators from an empirical standpoint. Particularly, the role of business incubators in the emergence and development of born global firms is focused; thereby outlining the significance of incubator influence on rapid internationalization.

Design/methodology/approach
Based on extant literature on born globals, business incubators, and their interrelationship that nurtures internationalization, a theoretical model is developed and empirically tested to analyze potential born globals residing in business incubators.

Findings
Due to services provided, such as infrastructure, business support and networking, business incubators create a favourable environment for rapid internationalization of their tenants. However, the initiative to go international comes from the incubatees, and the motivating role of business incubators in this process is fairly insignificant.

Originality/value
The incubator-incubation phenomenon is notably under-researched, with most of the literature focusing on “incubator topics”. This relationship is extremely important to understand in order to choose appropriate political measures and orchestrate effective management of business incubators.
