"It was an honor to have the company of great esteemed colleagues from Northeastern University, Florida Atlantic University and George Washington University, among others for this book's global launch, done in collaboration with co-author Sasha Fuerst from EGADE Business School, Tec de Monterrey in Mexico,” Felzensztein said. “This is Entrepreneurial Leadership with real-world impact."

Other scholars are praising the new book.

“A timely, insightful book for all interested in the research, pedagogy and practice of international entrepreneurship (IE). Editors Felzensztein and Fuerst outline an impactful research agenda for the field with each chapter providing a unique perspective on some of the most important IE research questions of the post-COVID era,” said Professor Martina Musteen, San Diego State University.

“While the field of international entrepreneurship has grown over the past few decades, there is still much work to do to address the ever-changing grand challenges of our time,” Professor Stephanie Fernhaber of Butler University said. “This must-read collection of articles provides a comprehensive overview and path for moving the field forward.”

“This research book constitutes a very timely and highly relevant input to the academic studies of International Entrepreneurship,” said Per Servais, Professor of Management at Linnaeus University, Sweden. “The book centers around the research areas of IE; Founders, Firm and Environment and brings in the newest progress in the field. The book presents interesting viewpoints as to different kinds of International New Ventures/Born Globals and research insights about Entry Modes, Learning and Internationalization processes. The book advances the view of network processes, sustainability, and digitalization. As a contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals it has pivotal chapters on Internationalizing new ventures from emerging markets.”
