International entrepreneurship (IE) research has commonly neglected significant perspectives applied by international business scholars. Explanations for the emergence and growth of international entrepreneurial firms largely focus on the resource-based view and the network perspective. While these approaches are useful, we suggest that IE would benefit significantly from a greater emphasis on its lsquointernational naturersquo. Therefore, theories of international business should be employed in conjunction with other approaches in order to appropriately emphasize the lsquointernational characterrsquo, holistically study the IE notion, and considerably broaden the scope of IE examination. Suggestions for relevant research directions are discussed.
