In response to profound and emerging challenges arising from changes in the international order that affect international entrepreneurship, we address a gap in explanations for how the system for international relations shapes entrepreneurial internationalization. To do so, we develop a model that further explains the role of institutions in supporting international new ventures. We focus on how frictions in the interface between international and domestic institutions can influence momentum for entrepreneurial internationalization. We theorize how institutional work on the international-domestic interface can facilitate entrepreneurial internationalization that occurs in that interface. As such we provide additional understanding regarding factors that influence entrepreneurial internationalization.
