Entrepreneurship is on one hand a fast-growing research field, and on the other hand a complex and multidimensional phenomenon (Fayolle, 2014; Welter, 2011; Żur & Urbaniec, 2016), as it concerns not only actions of individuals, but also activities within the organizations or systems. Recent literature highlights that entrepreneurship is a context-based phenomenon (Zahra & Wright, 2011; Welter, 2011). And thus research on entrepreneurship has moved from the focus of the individual entrepreneurs and their challenges to a broader understanding of the context in which entrepreneurship is embedded. Context can be considered in different ways and with diverse dimensions, e.g. institutional, market, industry, spatial, social (Zahra & Wright, 2011). This thematic issue focusing on Entrepreneurship in the Global Context is a next step in the development of Entrepreneurial Business and Economics Review. The global context of entrepreneurship is an expansion of prior thematic issues referring to international entrepreneurship.
