    En este trabajo analizamos las fortalezas y debilidades de la empresa familiar que pueden ser considerados factores claves a la hora de facilitar o limitar su proceso de internacionalización. Nuestro interés es mostrar cómo todos estos aspectos influyen en el proceso de internacionalización de este tipo de empresas. De un lado, basándonos en el enfoque de recursos y capacidades, las empresas familiares pueden encontrar motivos suficientes para internacionalizarse si consideran que su ventaja competitiva en el país de destino podría sustentarse en alguna de sus fortalezas (sobre todo aquellas relacionadas con recursos de carácter intangible). De otro lado, también explicamos otros factores que pueden limitar o facilitar el proceso de internacionalización de estas empresas y que son consecuencia del solapamiento que se produce entre los sistemas familiar y empresarial. / The present work represents an analysis of the different strengths and weaknesses that can be considered as key factors in making easier or more difficult the internationalisation process of the family firm. In one hand, based to the resources and capabilities theory, we show how family businesses can find enough reasons for its internationalisation if they consider that their competitive advantage could be based on some of them, specially those ones linked to intangible resources. On the other hand, we also explain others factors that can limit or facilitate the internationalisation process whose origin is the overlap of family and firm systems.
