About this item
The challenges and opportunities that are presented to both small and medium-sized enterprises have changed dramatically in recent decades as the world’s economy becomes more globalised. The policies of open borders, a decrease in protectionism and the demise of the nation-state, have enabled small and large firms to engage in international activity from the outset.
The Global Entrepreneur: Lessons from International New Ventures, combines the many different theoretical perspectives on born-globals that have been previously researched, providing a unified framework to connect the antecedents, types, and outcomes of entrepreneurial activities pursued by such new ventures. A central case study of an international fashion firm which operates in over nine countries, runs through the text, highlighting the formation and success of born-globals and the importance of cultural competence.
This book will be invaluable to post-graduate students in the field of international business; entrepreneurship; ethnic entrepreneurs; global entrepreneurship, and international networks.
