This paper sets out to examine the internationalization processes of a sample of companies drawn from a cluster of photonics companies. Twenty CEOs were interviewed, face to face. Using content analysis combined with a grounded theory influenced approached the texts of these interviews were appraised. In this way the internationalization theory was critiqued and some insights developed into the international strategy process. Some salient findings emerged, some of strategic significance to the companies in the photonics cluster.
