ABSTRACT
In this issue of AME, the article by Oviatt and McDougall, "Global Start-ups: Entrepreneurs on a Worldwide Stage," paints a fascinating picture of the next millennium. Perhaps it will be an era filled with companies that will be global from their inception. In a world of rapidly transforming economies, instant communications, interconnected business alliances, disintermediation of supply chains, and ubiquitous technologies, the author's premise is not difficult to accept. However, most practitioners who read the article will struggle with the fundamental definition of "global" as put forth by the authors; therein lies the dilemma. We believe that many of the examples cited in the article are international, but not global. There is a distinction. This distinction raises profound questions as one examines the characteristics needed for truly global start-ups, as well as for other areas of management research.
