“In today’s digitalized world it is difficult to accept that cost or access to information would be as great a challenge or constraint on internationalization as in the 1970s. In fact, access to knowledge may be one factor explaining the shortened time lag between firm inception and first international operations (e.g., Christensen1991). However, there is empirical evidence that easy access to market information does not guarantee smooth and successful entry to international markets. On the contrary, it may create the illusion of understanding the customer and/or the market and lead to failure in internationalization (Nummela et al.2016)”
