Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

More than ever, organizations of all types are redefining themselves as international in scope. The pressure to internationalize is accelerating due in part to the self-interest of the organization as well as the impact of various external events and forces. Nowhere has the pressure been greater than on entrepreneurs. To be all inclusive and include papers on a wide variety of issues, international entrepreneurship in this Special Issue is defined as: “the process of an entrepreneur conducting business activities across national boundaries”.

This “crossing” can be looked in several ways:

  • comparing entrepreneurs in different countries;
  • analyzing aspects of international entrepreneurship, such as culture, entrepreneurial characteristics, organizational form and size, international market selection and entry strategy, political and economic systems and barriers that impact international entrepreneurship;
  • developing and/or using theories to look at various aspects of international entrepreneurship; or
  • approaching international entrepreneurship from various discipline perspectives providing a different view at the phenomenon.

Studying the variability of entrepreneurial attitudes within different countries is important in order to identify where attempts to increase entrepreneurial spirit and activity should focus. This article analyzes differences within multiple countries, as well the causal relationship of three attitudinal variables, namely, perceived behavioral control, subjective norm, and entrepreneurial motivations with entrepreneurial intention. We used a cross-national framework and analyzed the relation of four different countries with a sample of 800 students from Argentina (200), Chile (200), Panama (200), and Spain (200). Results show variability in all attitudes between countries with Panama rating the highest in most and Spain rating the lowest. Motivations expressed for entrepreneurship are not statistically significant between most countries, which suggests the perception of entrepreneurship as an engine for personal goals is high and similar in all four countries. Regression analysis showed subjective norm’s effect is not statistically significant in Argentina nor Chile for intentions, and Panama’s intentions are highly driven by entrepreneurial motivations. These suggest policies and programs should tap on the fairly consistent entrepreneurial spirit to capitalize on student’s interest in entrepreneurship, and pull them into training programs to strengthen their competences.
