This paper focuses on business networks in the internationalization of b-to-b-services. The literature includes vast amount of knowledge of internationalization of a firm in general. A great deal of this literature is based on the concept of incremental stepwise internationalization process and empirical findings in manufacturing companies. So far, little knowledge exists of internationalization of b-to-b-services via business networks. Thus, there is a need to examine this are further. This paper increases the knowledge by developing a conceptual framework which integrates the drivers and the process of internationalization of b-to-b-services.
