Scaling fast, failing faster: Capabilities for achieving realized digital scaling


  • Irina Mihailova University of Eastern Finland


The objective of this work is to examine the entrepreneurial teams’ key capabilities required to achieve realized international scaling of an entrepreneurial digital firm. Through explorative case studies of six Finnish digital firms exhibiting differences in scaling outcomes, this study suggests that a combination of the digital, entrepreneurial, and dynamic capabilities is a vital prerequisite of a realized digital scaling. Research findings also draw attention to the fact that albeit digital affordances offer unprecedented possibilities for international scaling, it is the digital venture’s founder who plays a key role in utilizing and transforming these possibilities into successful international scaling.
