Returnee entrepreneurship is the phenomenon of skilled personnel, including students and scientists, returning to their home country to start a new venture after several years of education and/or business experience within developed or OECD countries. During these experiences away from home, returnee entrepreneurs acquire advanced technology and knowhow, the ability to identify cross-country market opportunities, and international networks through relationships developed abroad. While the issue has been studied from several angles, Liu posits that many opportunities exist to understand better returned entrepreneurship and its impacts.
