Abstract: Based on the knowledge brokerage literature and the international entrepreneurship literature, we investigate whether returnees’ international knowledge transfer affects their entrepreneurial decisions and the extent to which this relationship is contingent on perceived supportive policies for returnee entrepreneurship and returnees’ difficulties with cross-cultural readjustment in their home countries. Analyzing first-hand survey data, we find a positive relationship between international knowledge transfer and returnees’ decisions to become entrepreneurs. This positive relationship is strengthened by the perception of the home country’s supportive policies for returnee entrepreneurship but is weakened by returnees’ perceived difficulties in readjusting to the local norms and culture in their home countries.
