Marcin Soniewicki , Łukasz Wawrowski


The article aims to compare the intensity of use of external knowledge sources in various types of businesses. It focuses on companies in the process of internationaliza-tion as they operate in diverse, demanding environment. Furthermore, the form of own-ership of companies is also taken into account as effectiveness of private- and state-owned enterprises is the topic of ongoing debate in many countries. The results show that Polish private- and state-owned enterprises engaged abroad characterize with their own speci-ficity in terms of knowledge sources they use. Nevertheless, they acquire external knowledge less intensively than foreign owned businesses.
