The final configuration dimension concerns the mode of entry into foreign markets. The limited resources and knowledge intensity characterizing BGs imply that most would opt to enter international markets using the exporting mode (which can range from domestic export houses to direct export sales) (Madsen et al. 2000). The BG firm is also very likely to cultivate collaboration with various partners in the foreign market, such as agents and distributors, as well as through piggybacking. For BGs, the FDI venue is not particularly attractive as a foreign market entry mode, although other less resource-intensive options, such as contract manufacturing, licensing, and joint venturing, are more plausible.

BGs also tend to flourish in countries with small and open economies, such as Australia (Rennie 1993), Ireland (Knight et al. 2001), and Finland (Kirpalani and Luostarinen 1999). In these countries, the founders of BGs recognize the limited potential of the domestic market (for example, for corporate growth, sales generation, and economies of scale) and therefore seek, from the very beginning, to identify and exploit opportunities in international markets (Luostarinen and Gabrielsson 2004). The small size of the domestic market in such nations has been cited as one of the reasons for small firms to begin exporting (Leonidou et al.
