This editorial is written at an unprecedented time in human history, when the entire world is engulfed with the effects of COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has taken lives of millions of people, destroyed families, and disrupted the livelihoods of hundreds of millions more. Isolations, lockdowns, and restricted movements threaten to hamper business and unravel the social fabric of the contemporary world. With widespread movement restrictions, human resilience is put to the test, manifesting through the digitalization of businesses, governments, and societies. Consequently, digital business transformation can be conceived as the single most important force to thrive in an exceptional time. In this special issue, we include seven insightful and well-executed research articles that advances contemporary knowledge on digital business transformation in the domains of innovation and entrepreneurship. We believe that these articles are only pertinent to the current circumstances where innovation and entrepreneurship are inevitably digitally-driven, but they are also likely to be relevant beyond the pandemic where digitalization would become the new norm in business transformation.
