ََThis study explores internationalization in small- and medium-sized companies. Based on the resarch model, the role of environmental (external) and organizational (internal) factors on internationalization of small- and medium-sized companies is studied. A quationnaire was distributed among research sample managers (board members) of food industry units situated in Tehran and the gathered data was analyzed using structural equation. Results show that both factors positively affected internationalization but organizational factors had a more significant effect. This confirms the important role of organizations' managers and entrepreneurs.
