This research note reports conclusions from a small group of interviews done with Korean- American entrepreneurs located in three ethnic enclaves near Atlanta, GA. We found that these ethnic entrepreneurs started and operated their businesses in ways similar to what has been reported in prior research and similar to native-born American entrepreneurs. However, we found some important differences. Korean electronic social media was employed in ways not previously reported. Churches provided suppo...

While we have gained considerable knowledge since the late 1980s regarding the phenomena of international new ventures, less is known about the influence of industry structure on these ventures. In the present paper, we draw on literature from industrial economics, international business and entrepreneurship to identify industry structure variables that fit within the theoretical framework of international new ventures. We then offer propositions as to how the identified industry structure varia...

Young ventures are becoming increasingly sophisticated about internationalizing their firms. However, this article suggests that young ventures may be overlooking the influence of service content on internationalization. This research argues and tests the proposal that service content is a critical variable influencing both the propensity of young ventures to internationalize and their location decisions. Employing a sample of 190 U.S.-based firms, this study measures the service content charact...

This research presents the development of an instrument for measuring the service content (the degree of intangibility, perishability, simultaneity, and heterogeneity) characterizing a firm's output. Service characteristics are acknowledged to be important strategic variables, and the characteristic of intangibility has been studied extensively. The scale presented here is an improvement over previous methods. In contrast to previous methods that have relied on various categorizations, or that h...

This article provides a reformulated definition of international entrepreneurship. Consistent with the new definition, a model is presented of how the speed of entrepreneurial internationalization is influenced by various forces. The model begins with an entrepreneurial opportunity and depicts the enabling forces of technology, the motivating forces of competition, the mediating perceptions of entrepreneurs, and the moderating forces of knowledge and networks that collectively determine the spee...

Yves Doz, Jose Santos, and Peter Williamson’s (2001) book about metanational processes emphasizes entrepreneurial behavior and briefly considers what they call metanational upstarts. We extend their exploration in this article through our focus on the rapid internationalization of new ventures. We present a multilevel model of new venture internationalization that highlights the importance of managing risk. The model specifies relationships between the general environment and venture entrepreneu...

Differences between international new ventures (INVs) and domestic new ventures (DNVs) were examined using a sample of 214 IPO new ventures (ventures 6 years old or less). INVs were found to be significantly different on the basis of their entrepreneurial team experience, strategy, and industry structure. Specifically, the entrepreneurial team of INVs exhibited higher levels of previous international and industry experience. The strategies of INVs were more aggressive, and they operated in more ...

Abstract Twenty-seven graduate students used a CD-ROM program to study transnational management, while a control group of twenty-six used traditional study methods. Use of the CD-ROM was not associated with better examination performance, which suggests the need to scrutinize more closely the benefits of CD-ROM aided instruction given the millions of dollars being invested in new classroom technology by US universities.
