Understanding Transnational Entrepreneurship Through a Network Lens: Theoretical and Methodological Considerations


Wenhong Chen, tel.: +1-919-660-5604; e-mail:


Although networks have been considered crucial to transnational entrepreneurship (TE), there has been a lack of theoretical and methodological engagement with social network analysis in the existing TE research. We approach TE through a lens of glocalized networks—networks with both local and global connection. We develop a framework that articulates the relation of glocalized networks and TE and discuss how to capture the structure and impacts of glocalized networks in the process of TE.
