The development of "international intellectual entrepreneurs" addresses a vital topic. The societal want for speedy enhancement of material living requires the increase of the number of "active" intellectual entrepreneurs. Those who produce products and services through use of the internet that drives the growth of technological knowledge. Furthermore, these persons must be capable of commercializing their skills and internationalizing their activities. A new competitive landscape is taking shape. The new information highway, the internet, is driving the technological revolution and rapid globalization. A characteristic of the revolution is the emphasis on knowledge for competitive advantage. An information and communications rich organizational environment is emerging. The widespread diffusion of technology is unstoppable. This, coupled with globalization, is producing hyper competition and a blurring of industry and product/service boundaries. In such conditions, intellectual entrepreneurship arising from use of the internet has much to do. Furthermore, the points made in the article apply as well to the development of "global" intellectual entrepreneurs. (Contains 3 figures.)
