Since 2006, the role of international opportunity recognition became an emergent research stream in international entrepreneurship. Following the definition of international opportunity recognition, the initial international opportunity recognition is defined as follows: The way an entrepreneur discovers the opportunity to exchange products and services with a new or existing partner in a new international market for the first time.  In this study, we perform an in-depth literature review on the international opportunity recognition concept, and we suggest future lines of research in this topic.
