Over the last 25 years, International Entrepreneurship (IE) developed into a unique field of study. Despite many accomplishments to date, recent reviews raise important questions about what we know about the antecedents and consequences of age at entry decisions, highlighting that “many knowledge gaps, theoretical inconsistencies, and conflicting predictions limit our understanding of IE” (Keupp & Gassmann, 2009: 601) and that “potential contradictions arise” with the effects of key antecedents (networks) on age at entry (Jones et al, 2011: 638).
