In recent decades small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) have undertaken a huge volume of cross-border foreign direct investment (FDI). These entrepreneurial organizations created innovative products and services, entering various countries based on entrepreneurial capabilities linked to their home countries. In adapting for these new territories, SMEs were required to construct local networks within their host countries, and, in turn, link into global networks based on their technological, managerial, and marketing capabilities.
