    Abstract

    The article by Oviatt and McDougall threw the spotlight on international entrepreneurs, on international new ventures, and on their importance in the globalising world economy. Recognising the rich theoretical implications of this phenomenon, they mounted a challenge to received internationalisation process theories and established a new and exciting research theme, that of international entrepreneurship. This article reviews the impact of their contribution and discusses new research themes raised by their challenge to the process theories of internationalisation.
