Entrepreneurial innovation and international growth are two preconditions to sustained competitive advantage. Especially in small and medium economies like Austria, companies must expand beyond their national borders at a very early stage. This need is amplified when talking about high-tech Startup companies. In an ever accelerating, globalizing world, companies must sustain their entrepreneurial initiatives through supportive internationalization and financial strategies. This course uses a real life example of an entrepreneurial corporate partner startup to teach how to apply international strategic management in an entrepreneurial environment. Students will develop recommendations for international expansion and related strategies. The corporate partner startup will be Trality, a FinTech co-founded in 2019 by the lecturer of this course. Trality is a platform for automated investments in crypto assets.
