This paper introduces a conceptual framework that extends the current notions of opportunity
identification and exploitation in international entrepreneurship research. Drawing on
entrepreneurship and strategic management literature we highlight that opportunity
identification is a path dependent and an individual centred process that is positioned on
learning, knowledge and capabilities of the decision makers. The proposed model offers testable
propositions to prepare the ground for future empirical research.
