This study examines what really accounts for the early adoption of internationalization by the Indian knowledgeintensive service firms and their continued success in international markets. On the basis of extant literature, a tentative frame of international entrepreneurial orientation, learning orientation is suggested and then used to analyse empirical material gleaned from multiple case studies of three Indian born global firms. Findings reveal that, despite the scarce resources, Indian born global firms leverage a distinctive mix of entrepreneurial orientations and strategies that allow them to succeed in diverse international markets. And their entrepreneurial orientation is nurtured through the learning processes.
