Early and Fast Internationalization of SMEs: case of six Moroccan women entrepreneurs
The early 1990s marked the field of international business with a new typology of more dynamic companies, which began to venture into foreign markets, either as soon as they were created or shortly thereafter. This typology is known by several names: "Born global" (Rennie, 1993; Knight and Cavusgil, 1994), "international new ventures" (Oviatt and McDougall, 1994), "Company with fast and early internationalization" (Servantie; 2007). The purpose of this article is to study the determinants of fast and early internationalization of companies launched by women entrepreneurs in Morocco, gathered on six companies operating in different sectors. The results taking as on study case are similar to those obtained by the authors in a mixed context, except for the point concerning risk-taking. According to the verbatim of the six women entrepreneurs, their attitude towards risk is negative.
