Information technology capacities and the born global companies

María Soledad Etchebarne López, Valeska Viola Geldres Weiss, Heidy Rodriguez Ramos


International business transactions have increased in recent years, triggered by the opening up of markets and the development of information technologies and communications, especially in the cases of small and medium enterprises. In this context, a new type of company is emerging: the so-called 'born global' companies. These organizations have an international profile since their birth, and have not gone through the traditional evolutionary pattern of internationalization.  This article describes the theories that explain this new phenomenon, the main features of these new companies and their relationship with information technology (IT), which allows them to generate competitive advantages when entering the international market.
