Abstract [en]

Sweden has large firms, which are very international (e.g. Electrolux, Volvo, Saab, Scania), however 97 % of Swedish firms are SMEs. Most of these SMEs are focusing on the home market. Although most Swedish SMEs are not focusing on international growth strategies, there are some Swedish new ventures that already from inception regard the world as their market - so called born globals. The number of born globals in Sweden is limited, and these companies only employ 0.75% of the overall number of employees working in Swedish SMEs. Still, born globals are important for the Swedish economy. They show higher willingness to grow and a greater employment growth than other companies Born globals are found in all sectors but are over-represented in high-tech sectors. In this chapter it is shown how born globals can continue to growth and create jobs. It is also illustrated how the growing creative industries sector are creating born globals and jobs. The chapter ends with policy and managerial implications.
