Providing cutting-edge material from a range of perspectives on entrepreneurial internationalization, this insightful book develops contemporary concepts and business models to engage with a rapidly changing and diversifying world economy. Chapters build a conceptual and theoretical illustration of the field, providing key frameworks for the analysis of entrepreneurial internationalization, including insights into strategy and organization, as well as fundraising strategies for early internationalizing startups. 

Top international scholars in the field apply these frameworks to specific real-world business environments, such as born globals, business model options and multinational corporations in emerging markets. The book concludes with analysis of international entrepreneurship across both traditional and digital contexts, highlighting the emerging implications for international entrepreneurship research of digitization and the Covid-19 pandemic.
 
Bringing together a multitude of critical evaluations, this book is crucial reading for scholars and researchers of SME internationalization and born globals, as well as upper-level students of international entrepreneurship. It will also benefit practitioners and policymakers hoping to engage with new digital developments in the world economy.
