Profiling family-run exporters: : A quantitative study on the international behavior of family-run small and medium-sized businesses

Wild, Pascal (School of Management Fribourg, HES-SO // University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland)

This book aims to determine the significant differences between exporting family and nonfamily SME in order to profile these exporting family firms with respect to their general export performance and the underlying strategies, their scope of exporting countries and characterizing them in different types of exporters. A comparative analysis is conducted based on the Swiss International Entrepreneurship Survey. A literature review leads to various hypotheses regarding the comparison of family and nonfamily SME, differences between founder-led and the successor-led family firms, and for differences between fully family owned firms and family firms with minor third shareholders.
