Abstract [en]

This study investigates the early adoption of internationalisation by Indian knowledge-intensive service firms (KISFs) and their success in international markets. On the basis of extant literature, a tentative framework of international entrepreneurial and learning orientation is suggested and used to analyse empirical material gleaned from three case studies. The findings reveal how Indian KISFs leverage their entrepreneurial orientations in the pursuit of diverse international market opportunities, and sustain their entrepreneurial orientation through continuous efforts to learn from experience and the environment. The study provides empirical insights into early internationalisation of Indian KISFs, thus addressing a lacuna in this field.
