The research setting for this study consisted of eight Finnish family firms operating in the French market, but with different modes of operation (seeTable 1). Finland was chosen as the country of origin due to its small and open economy with a very limited domestic market (OECD, 1997). In countries where the domestic market size is small, internationalization is an important growth strategy, forming part of efforts to guarantee long-term survival.
