Abstract

International entrepreneurship began emerging as a field of research in the late 1980s with the aim to understand the phenomenon of international new ventures and born global firms, i.e., firms that internationalize early on from inception. Over time, the field has progressively enlarged, extending its scope and positioning at the intersection of entrepreneurship and international business (McDougall-Covin, Jones and Serapio, 2014). This enlargement raised increased academic interest in the topic and a growing amount of contributions dedicated to special issues in leading journals (e.g., Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice, Vol. 38, Issue 1, 2014), as well as the Journal of International Business Studies decade award to Oviatt and McDougall the for their 1994 contribution, and to Knight and Cavusgil for their 2004 article.
