UK SMEs' entrepreneurial behaviour and planning in BREXIT

Do, Hang and Smallbone, David (2017) UK SMEs' entrepreneurial behaviour and planning in BREXIT. In: RENT XXXI: Relevance in Entrepreneurship Research; 15-17 Nov 2017, Lund, Sweden.


Uncertainty is known to be associated with the internationalisation process in past research. Brexit has simulated the uncertainty in the UK business environment, especially to exporting SMEs. As the lifeblood of the UK economy, SMEs’ international behaviour and planning in this turbulent environment is central to reflect their responses to the economic and political changes. This study aims to explore the entrepreneurial planning and behaviour of UK based SMEs and their reaction to Brexit. More specifically, a comparative study is conducted to verify how born globals and established enterprises perceive and the consequences on their planning and behaviour.
