Uppsala Seminar of International Business (USIB) is the regular research seminars held by International Business group in the Department of Business Studies, Uppsala University.

Sylvie will present a keynote speech prepared for the AIB-UKI conference entitled "Social capital, effectuation, and internationalising SMEs during challenging times: Current Trends". 

Abstract of presentation

The presentation will focus on an overview of my published research on social capital and effectuation and will provide some current trends and implications for future researchers in this area.

Small and medium size firms from small open economies that are growth oriented are quickly propelled into internationalisation because of their small domestic markets (SMOPECS). Their social capital facilitates or hinders their entry into foreign networks to become insiders. So, the question is: how will these firms handle the challenges of deglobalisation?
