Abstract

This paper proposes an analytical framework for international entrepreneurship in fruit production companies. A multiple case study is developed with qualitative approach. Thirty managers and consultants participated in the research that used semi-structured interviews for data collection. Content analysis was adopted with the support of ATLAS.ti software. The presence of eight international entrepreneurship dimensions in this process is noted, most of these are present in the literature (attitude towards risk, ability to innovate, competitive resources development, opportunity, propensity to adapt, and relationship networks), while two emerged from the data (bold commercialisation and international entrepreneur). International entrepreneurship develops from a range of dimensions that have a continuous and intermittent nature.
