Abstract

Entrepreneurs’ decisions are at the center of theoretical models of International Entrepreneurship (IE). This implies that IE research should develop explicit strategies to account for the many challenges that early internationalization poses as a decision task (e.g., ex-ante uncertainty, complexity imposed by the multitude of relevant factors, ambiguity of information signals, resources constraints and unique circumstances, etc.). In spite of its many achievements however, evidence suggests that IE research has yet to fully and completely articulate such strategies. These failings limit our understanding of entrepreneurs’ decisions to internationalize early, as well as our ability to design effective policies to support IE and foster economic growth.
