Topic: Culture of Entrepreneurship: The case of Hyundai Motor India
Abstract: Hyundai Motor has achieved great success in global emerging markets that includes Indian market. As a typical emerging market, India has poor infrastructure for automobile industry, great uncertainty and institutional voids. Expatriate managers of Hyundai Motor Group in India showed astonishing entrepreneurship and overcame barriers of Indian market. Not like other expatriate managers in India, who just complain the poor infrastructure and passively conform to the local regulations, HMI people creatively solved difficulties that threaten their survival and proactively built their own value chain there. The success of HMI is originated by the Hyundai’s organizational culture that emphasizes on entrepreneurship and problem solving with creativity. Hyundai’s entrepreneurial culture is deeply rooted by its founder Chung Joo Young who built his own conglomerate from bare hands. Hyundai’s entrepreneurial culture will be analyzed and implication of the success of Hyundai Motor India for new emerging market in Asia will be also addressed.
