Abstract

This paper presents an exploration into the market entry strategies of diaspora entrepreneurs in emerging economies. The research is qualitative using a case study approach involving in-depth semi-structured interviews. The findings suggest that diaspora entrepreneurs adopt mostly the network or, in some cases, the international new venture (born-global) market entry strategy rather than the traditional stage by stage approach. They also reveal that diaspora entrepreneurs adopt a learning process for their market entry. The paper contributes to better understanding on the transnational diaspora entrepreneurship and its dynamics. The implications for the study are also discussed.
