Examining business environments is integral to advance discussion on SMEs’ internationalisation (Child et al. 2017). This study posits to explain how SMEs perceive and define munificence within the context of their internationalisation. Environmental munificence has been typically examined in terms of market related parameters, i.e. such as organisation’s ability to access resources. Recognising the influence of the formal and informal dimensions of SME’s domestic institutional context we shed light on the soft intangible dimensions of munificence and how they affect internationalisation. We argue that environmental munificence has also a soft and intangible dimension that can be co-created by the stakeholders of the internationalisation decision and which is conditional on the structural and relational dimensions of SME decision-makers’ domestic social capital in the home market. The pre-sent study establishes that interactions and dynamics between the formal and informal dimension of the home market institutional context as well as founder’s domestic social capital in creating conditional munificence in the context of SME’s internationalisation.
