The issue of understanding about the internationalization process of small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) from emerging economies is still lacking. This study attempts to identify a framework for understanding SMEs internationalization in India. Integrating five major internationalisation perspectives including, the Incremental, Rapid, Network, Resource-based and International Entrepreneurship, a qualitative methodology using a Delphi technique was taken for collecting data. Thirty-two Indian experts were interviewed in two phases, 2006 and 2009.The main contributions of this study are a comprehensive framework of SME internationalization, a formulation of a series of propositions, and broader theory of internationalisation that supports Dunning’s Eclectic paradigm.
