ie-scholars.net is a virtual community for scholars interested in International Entrepreneurship (IE). It facilitates sharing of resources, expertise and knowledge on a global scale. Our hope is that this community will accelerate the development of ideas and approaches to key theoretical, methodological and empirical issues in IE.

ie-scholars.net was initially supported by with funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Knowledge Cluster program. It is currently supported by the Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) in San Diego State University (SDSU).

The online community is managed by Martina Musteen at the Fowler School of Business Administration at San Diego State University.

We have three types of community building activities:

  1. Fostering and accelerating research. Providing bibliographies and other research tools, building databases, aiding new scholars, and mentoring graduate students.
  2. Knowledge mobilization and dissemination. Exploring models of IE education, curriculum development, and helping transfer knowledge to interested policy-makers and entrepreneurs.
  3. Community growth and enhancement. Extending and diversifying the network, engaging scholars in research and mobilization activities, enhancing the annual conference and awards to recognize excellence in research.
