The dimensions of international entrepreneurship: a proposition of a framework

Yákara Vasconcelos Pereira Leite, Walter Fernando Araújo de Moraes


This theoretical paper aims to present a framework of international entrepreneurship (IE). The proposal is based on the critical review of theoretical and empirical international and national researches of this promising area. The texts analyzed were selected in major scientific bases available in Brazil, namely: CAPES Journals, Proquest and Ebsco. As result of the research, six dimensions of entrepreneurship were identified, namely: propensity to the adaption, social networks, international opportunities, ability to innovate, attitude towards risk and the development of competitive resources. Theses elements are expressed in key events of business internationalization with intermittent incidence along the trajectory of internationalization. Moreover, as implications for future research, it is observed that the process and contextual factors favor the application of the EI framework .
