Dear AIB colleagues We are delighted to issue a call for papers for an upcoming Special Issue in the Journal of World Business on 'Scale-ups and Scaling in an International Business Context.' The aim of this special issue is to advance insights and theory on the cross-border nature of scaling situations in both scale-ups that seek to establish international size and MNCs that seek to capture global opportunities quickly. The mission can relate to a commercial and/or social purpose. We encourage conceptual, methodological and empirical contributions that address, but are not limited to, topics such as the process of scaling in international markets, international scalability, technology and business models, enablers and constraints of scaling, dynamics in established MNCs, and international/global and local ecosystems.
