Many multinational corporations are now investing in emerging market economies, (EMEs). At the same time, within these countries, local entrepreneurs are starting up new ventures or looking to expand existing businesses. Yet the rate of new venture failures in these markets is high. This book suggests that the best way for companies operating in EMEs to find a distinctive and sustainable market position is to address what is unique and valuable in the EME itself.

The book presents a series of studies from different scholars, which help readers to understand the distinctive nature of EMEs. The contributors consider how entrepreneurial activities are successfully carried out in EMEs, how these activities can take advantage of new technologies, and what the main constraints are. Each article is written in an accessible style, free from jargon, making the collection suitable for readers with no prior technical knowledge.
