‘Expatpreneurship’ in emerging economies - A case study about the emergence and venture process of expat-preneurs in Rwanda
Abstract: What does it take to venture into emerging economies and build a company in a cultural distinct setting? This paper shines more light into the phenomenon of expat-preneurs and thereby delineates between two phases in the venture process: Opportunity identification and opportunity development. It has been found in alignment with the literature that a global mindset, prior entrepreneurial experience, personal and professional networks, and institutional bridging are conducive to opportunity identification and development of expat-preneurs. Moreover, the research brought to light that a social commitment is another key enabler for the venture creation process in emerging economies.
