Abstract


Abstract. Interest in transnational entrepreneurship has expanded in recent years. However, there are limited qualitative surveys that shed light on the mindset of the contemporary transnational entrepreneur.

Jose Goldner is a partner at Briggs Capital based in Massachusetts, USA. Through an interview conducted by Dr. J. Mark Munoz of Millikin University, with the assistance of business student Haley Hogenkamp, Goldner shares his viewpoints on transnational entrepreneurship and its business implications.

Keywords. Transnational entrepreneurship, Entrepreneurship, International business.
