Reverse Entrepreneurship in Latin America: Internationalization from Emerging Markets to Developed Economies (edited by Reyes-Mercado, P. & Larios-Hernández).

The book explores the concept of reverse entrepreneurship, providing real-life examples of innovative start-ups and ventures hoping to internationalize.

About the Book

Traditionally, entrepreneurial ideas have flowed from developed countries to emerging markets. This book, however, examines entrepreneurial ideas flowing in the opposite direction, with case studies from organizations that were initially launched in emerging markets. With a specific focus on Latin America, the cases examine the experiences of entrepreneurs and reveal much-needed strategies for entry into developed markets. This book will undoubtedly be useful to both academics and practitioners as it covers a wide range of industries, products and services and takes a closer look at market platforms and high-impact entrepreneurship. Providing a valuable contribution to a relatively unexplored area, this is a compelling collection of insights into reverse entrepreneurship which presents practical solutions for entrepreneurs looking to expand their businesses in the future.
