Abstract

The “OLI paradigm” of Dunning (1977) claims that firm internationalization is addressed toward the exploitation of home-based specific advantages. However, evidence shows that SMEs are increasingly internationalizing their activities in order to enrich their resource pool. In this regard, a reinterpretation of the OLI paradigm came out with a new perspective suggesting that “foreign direct investment” (FDI) is increasingly oriented toward asset augmentation. Correspondingly, the purpose of this theoretical paper is to suggest a set of principles that could inform on how global small and medium-sized enterprises grow in the international marketplace when investing abroad.

Keywords: SME, OLI, knowledge, exploitation, exploration
