The new Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal is rapidly becoming one of my favorite reads. (And not just because I’m the SEJ’s #1 author — it’s true, when my colleagues and I submitted this paper, we were assigned manuscript number SEJ-0001.) Here’s a call for papers for a special issue on international entrepreneurship edited by Douglas Cumming, Don Siegel, and Mike Wright. The call lists several potential research questions::

  • How do government policies impact incentives to form strategic alliances among entrepreneurial firms in domestic versus foreign settings?
  • What is the role of laws and public policy in stimulating transnational and returning entrepreneurs?
  • What is the role of social networks in international entrepreneurship?
  • What factors lead to the success of immigrant entrepreneurs in different countries?
  • What is the interaction between public policy and foreign investment in entrepreneurial ventures?
  • What explains international differences in governmental policies regarding intellectual property, entrepreneurship, and entrepreneurial finance?
  • How does international entrepreneurship affect firm performance?
  • How important is product and geographic focus for entrepreneurial success within different public policy settings?
  • What are the implications of corporate entrepreneurship for multinational companies?
  • How do corporate governance regulations impact international entrepreneurship?
  • How do venture capitalists and private equity firms make decisions in an international context, including the decision to make cross-border investments and how to enter international markets?
  • What is the role of academic entrepreneurship in various nations? Is their convergence or divergence in policies to stimulate academic entrepreneurship?
  • How do universities stimulate international technology transfer and commercialization?
  • What is the relative importance of patenting, licensing, and property-based institutions, such as science parks and incubators in stimulating entrepreneurship in various nations?

Submissions are due 31 December. Accepted papers will be presented at a conference at York University in April.
