Transnational intrapreneurship: opportunity development in transnational teams in the Nordic periphery
by Maria Elo; Zsuzsanna Vincze
International Journal of Entrepreneurship and Small Business (IJESB), Vol. 36, No. 1/2, 2019

Abstract: Transnational resources of entrepreneurs and employees foster firm's competiveness. Firm competitiveness, especially the knowledge intensive business, is linked to its talent base and embeddedness in international networks providing business opportunities. However, in peripheral regions it is challenging to capitalise on international talent. This single case study describes an enterprise in Northern Sweden, which is strategically employing transnational diaspora resources and foreign STEM-talent as transnational intrapreneurs developing the business. The study contributes to international opportunity development and transnational diaspora research and illustrates how the creation of a transnational work-scape may compensate locational disadvantages and enable access to new opportunities and ideas.
