Accordingly, the aim of this research is to enhance our understanding of entrepreneursí digital capabilities and their decision-making logic regarding internationalization within a Born Digital Start-up using effectuation as a theoretical approach. A qualitative and interpretive method is used for this purpose in a single case setting.
