The entrepreneurial ecosystem
stream of research is relatively new, yet it has started to attract the
attention of scholars across a range of disciplines including
international business and international entrepreneurship. Review
studies are needed to consolidate the research and to illustrate the
status quo and present visions for research going forward. This study
aims to do so by applying bibliometric process technique. The present
study summarizes the key countries and institutions, source journals,
scholars and publications, and key themes encompassing the domain of
entrepreneurial ecosystem research up to 2019. The findings illustrate
an exponential growth of research covering a wide array of disciplines
and top journals, observe several influential scholars and their
collaboration networks, and find that the studies remain distinctly
practitioner focused. In addition, six themes within the research domain
are identified. The multilevel analysis gives a comprehensive overview
of the entrepreneurial ecosystem domain.
