This research has two main objectives. Firstly, this research contributes to defining the concept of export entrepreneurship from a theoretical point of view, and this is a contribution taking into account the scarce and fragmented literature published about this topic. Furthermore, the authors explain export entrepreneurship dimensions – speed, degree, and scope. Thirdly, we empirically analyze the internal drivers of export entrepreneurship from the resource-based view—RBV—and the Schwartz' value approach. A conceptual model is proposed and tested with a multi-sectorial sample of 212 Spanish exporting companies. The results reveal that export entrepreneurship is positively affected by internal factors, such as export commitment, managers value, and experiential and structure resources. The results offer academic and managerial contributions for the field of export activities.
