Objective of the book:

There has been growing attention placed on the role of entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial activities in driving global economic growth and also in responding to changing social and environmental conditions affecting societies globally. In itself, the identification and capture of international opportunities represents an act of entrepreneurship by disrupting and creating markets in foreign countries. Historically, the international entrepreneurship literature has focused on the rapid and early internationalization of new ventures and start-ups. Yet an increasing number of multinational enterprises (MNEs) are encouraging and developing corporate intrapreneurship, where managers promote innovation in products and processes. Moreover, various activities by entrepreneurs and their start-ups are solving social, cultural and environmental challenges in foreign markets. This dedicated volume discusses these and other contemporary and emerging issues of entrepreneurship in International Business.

Contributions may address but are not limited to the following topics:

  • What are the internationalization and scaling strategies of entrepreneurial firms (e.g., early and rapid internationalization or international withdrawal)?
  • How do entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial firms identify new opportunities?
  • How does social entrepreneurship address social, cultural and environmental issues?
  • How do firms encourage and develop corporate intrapreneurship?
  • What is the role of individuals in encouraging entrepreneurship (e.g., new venture owners, female entrepreneurs, expatriates, refugees)?
  • What are the strategic responses employed by entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial firms to the institutional environment (i.e. non-market strategies)? 
  • How do entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial firms respond to the challenges faced in cross-border activities?


We welcome comparative studies, cross-cultural investigations, case studies, and both qualitative and quantitative approaches to examining entrepreneurship in the context of international business.
