High-growth British Asian entrepreneurial success in the UK has been a phenomenon that has been well documented. A traditional approach to this phenomenon has been to see the success from the perspectives of resource acquisition and the industrial sectors the businesses are based in, and contextualized by the environment. In this chapter we argue that the lens of entrepreneurial discovery and opportunity recognition provides more telling insights into the nature of Asia entrepreneurship. Having unique access to high-growth Asian entrepreneurs, we report on a case analysis of eleven high-growth Asian entrepreneurs through the lens of entrepreneurial discovery. We conclude that the study of high-growth Asian entrepreneurship offers a new perspective on contextualizing entrepreneurial discovery, providing a greater understanding of this phenomenon.
