The objective of this chapter is to develop researchers’ understanding of the term ‘transnational entrepreneur’ within the academic domain of international entrepreneurship and the wider international business literature. There is a growing body of knowledge involving ‘international entrepreneurship’ which McDougall and Oviatt (2000: 903) suggest is ‘a combination of innovative, proactive and risk-seeking behaviour that crosses national borders and is intended to create value in organisations’. International entrepreneurial strategies have been found to be influenced by a variety of issues such as the resources that are available, networks, and are also contingent on factors associated with environmental conditions plus the perceived associated risk (Calof and Beamish, 1995; Jones, 1999; Bell et al., 2004).
