Building on past years’ experience, we seek contributions that focus on the role of digitalization
in entrepreneurial and internationalizing firms.  We focus on efficient and effective knowledge exchange that is pivotal for global business practice and sustained business performance in foreign endeavours. Our mini-track covers aspects related to entrepreneurship, marketing, management, international business, digitalization, knowledge intensive firms like born digitals, and the role of information systems within these contexts. Our methodological and theoretical standpoints contemplate qualitative, quantitative, and mixed method research approaches, where cross-pollination of fields of research is particularly relevant. We thus welcome papers from researchers as well as practitioners, in the hope of attaining better understanding of thematical areas such as the below ones:

·        The role of digital artifacts in new entrepreneurial ventures, international new ventures, born globals, born digitals and other entrepreneurial firms

·        Born digital firms, being digital from inception and featuring a digital infrastructure

·        Business models of born digitals and internationalizing firms

·        The role of cultural differences in managing and designing international customer relationship and other international marketing activities in the digitalized world

and sharing economy
