From examination of the existing literature, it has been argued that a number of different reactive and proactive motives for internationalisation of SMEs has a particular impact on future business growth and profitability. Small to medium-sized enterprises have to follow certain strategies in order to stay internationally successful (Hegge, p. 170) and gain competitive advantage. The reasons to internationalise are mostly market driven and less resource and efficiency driven, which signifies that market access, growth and access to new technologies are very important. (Hegge, p.173) It has been discussed that geographical and psychical distance plays a significant role for a firm when selecting a number of countries to go international. On the other hand, a limited company resources, lack of managerial skills and market knowledge are the top barriers to SME internationalisation. Authors concluded that there is a high level of risk in financial operations across different countries due to the unstable economic situation and fast changing business environments. Earlier studies of Uppsala model have shown four stages referring to the process of internationalisation and identified exporting as a starting point. However, the stage-theory model was criticised by a number of theorists that the series of internationalisation strategies are based on effects of learning and experience of Swedish and Australian firms what makes it irrelevant to nowadays situation. According to the discussion above, it is possible to conclude that internationalisation gives a better and faster business growth for a firm and the ability to double its revenues, however, SMEs internationalisation is a tough process and has a number of barriers which can be strategically overcome and well managed.
