Abstract

Transnational resources of entrepreneurs and
employees foster firm's competiveness. Firm competitiveness, especially
the knowledge intensive business, is linked to its talent base and
embeddedness in international networks providing business opportunities.
However, in peripheral regions it is challenging to capitalise on
international talent. This single case study describes an enterprise in
Northern Sweden, which is strategically employing transnational diaspora
resources and foreign STEM-talent as transnational intrapreneurs
developing the business. The study contributes to international
opportunity development and transnational diaspora research and
illustrates how the creation of a transnational work-scape may
compensate locational disadvantages and enable access to new
opportunities and ideas.
