This  paper offers a conceptual assessment of some constraints associated  with development of dynamic capabilities, for achieving a competitive  advantage by African firms in international context. The paper advances  the extant international entrepreneurship and dynamic capabilities  literature by specifically highlighting the role of financial,  managerial, institutional, and spiritual factors in relation to the  development of capabilities needed for success in international markets.  

Several strategies including human resource management and human capital development practices which can potentially strengthen the dynamic capabilities linked to international entrepreneurial  competitiveness of African firms are also suggested based on the  conceptual discussion.
