Research to date in international entrepreneurship has mainly treated the internationalization process and characteristics of NEVs with early international exposure. However, the literature has not offered any hints on how specific orientations, strategies, or processes differ in their impact across settings. The present study's objective is to fill this gap. More concretely, two research questions are addressed to advance international entrepreneurship research: (1) Are individual, team, and organizational level learning success factors for NEVs in a globalized world? (2) Does national culture have an impact on these performance relationships?
