The international entrepreneur is a relative ‘newcomer’ and neophyte to international business research. This paper presents an international new venture (INV) case study of an American international entrepreneurial (IE) firm and its business startup and creation issues in Thailand. By using qualitative analysis techniques and in-depth interviews with the company owners, a detailed view of the INV processes involved and the decisions required by these international entrepreneurs for employing semi-skilled Thai operators and highly-skilled analysts from India are presented. An eclectic concepts approach is used to explain the INV business dynamics, interactions, and implications.
