This paper examines the emergence of digital entrepreneurship in the context of emerging economies. We argue that digital entrepreneurship facilitates the navigation and bridging of socio-cultural institutional voids and provides opportunities to alter the existing institutional, social and cultural context. In so doing, we draw upon six biographical narrations of female digital entrepreneurs in Saudi Arabia.
