Abstract

In this study, we examine the drivers of internationalization speed of Indian software firms which have been known to exhibit high speed of internationalization even to culturally distant countries. Drawing from the LLL perspective proposed for EMNEs and supplementing it with the arguments from the absorptive capacity and organizational inertia perspectives, we argue for inverted U shaped relationships between geographic scope and added cultural distance on the one hand, and speed of internationalization, on the other hand. We also argue for an interactive effect between added cultural distance and the regularity in adding cultural distance. Our analyses of internationalization patterns of 32 leading Indian software firms over the period 2000 to 2009 support all our key hypotheses. Our study provides a nuanced understanding of the internationalization by software firms and suggests that country and industry contexts are important in understanding internationalization.
