Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Building on a transaction cost economics (TCE) approach this study aims to study the relationship between global market scope and export performance in family SMEs. Using a sample of European firms our empirical analysis supports that family SMEs carry an inverted U-shaped relationship between geographic scope and export performance. Moreover, we find that external managers and outside ownership influence this relationship.
