Globalization and Entrepreneurship

Policy and Strategy Perspectives Edited by Hamid Etemad, Professor, Desautels Faculty of Management, McGill University, Canada and Richard Wright, E. Claiborne Robins Distinguished Professor of Business, Robins School of Business, University of Richmond, Virginia, US
The contributors to this collection provide a wealth of new analyses of both traditional and emerging aspects of entrepreneurship, from a variety of national perspectives and from a variety of disciplines.

Globalization has begun to dismantle the barriers that traditionally segregated local business opportunities and local firms from their international counterparts. Local markets are becoming integral parts of broader, global markets. As globalization proceeds apace, entrepreneurs and small businesses will play a more prominent role on the global business arena. The volume is divided into three sections. The first looks at the internationalization process itself while the second focuses on factors facilitating this process in small and medium-sized firms. The last section examines emerging dimensions in management policy.

This book provides valuable insights for business leaders, policy formulators, students and academics alike in understanding and coping with our rapidly changing world.
‘The perspectives generated are refreshingly new and highly revealing. The scholars deserve rich compliments. Those interested in entrepreneurship as well as international business will find this collection facilitating and useful for further research as they fill many gaps in the literature.’
– V.K. Kumar, Global Business Review

‘Globalization and Entrepreneurship is a well-edited volume that brings together important aspects of the internationalisation process with special reference to small and medium sized enterprises. As it is dealing with a contemporary issue this book will undoubtedly be of interest to the academic world, but there is also much to interest the business reader.’
– Max Good, International Journal of Entrepreneurship and Innovation
