It suggests a holistic view and a better understanding of the correlation between internationalization and creative thinking. The enterprises operate in six industry sectors: gaming, artificial intelligence, information and communication technology, cleantech, life sciences and consumer goods. The case study approach was used to investigate the phenomenon in a real-life context and to present a conceptual framework that generalizes the findings.
