Abstract

Global economies are involved with enormous activities of internationalisation that provide pure and untapped opportunities for entrepreneurs and businesses to place and promote their products. This study set out to improve the understanding of the role of human capital and foresight competencies on entrepreneurial internationalisation. Our results reveal that human capital enhances the foresight competencies of managers that they both together simulate individuals who desire to be involved international entrepreneurship. To do so, we applied structural equation modelling (SEM) analyse with the partial least squares (PLS), conducting an empirical analysis of data from twenty-eight European countries.
