Abstract

The founders' cognitive element: the global mindset to become global at the inception is mostly absent from the literature on born-global. Furthermore, the scope of research into the impact of entrepreneurial orientation on a born-global global mindset in underdeveloped countries is minimal. Thus, this study aims to explore the influence of entrepreneurial orientation on the global mindset. Using the structural equation modelling (SEM) analytic technique, the research hypotheses based on the literature on entrepreneurial orientation and a global mindset are examined with a sample of 295 Sri Lankan ICT-born-global firms. The results indicate that innovativeness, risk-taking, and proactiveness have a favourable impact on the global mindset in Sri Lankan ICT-born-global. The most important managerial takeaway from this research is that entrepreneurs should work on enhancing their entrepreneurial processes to increase their receptivity to global opportunities.
