Article publication date: 9 August 2013
The purpose of this paper is to introduce the special issue on “Entrepreneurial migration: characteristics, causes and effects”.
Studies on immigrant entrepreneurship have become increasingly popular and the importance of social context and social connections has been recognized by scholars. However, research on their effects on immigrant entrepreneurship has been rather limited. This special issue explains the essential steps of the entrepreneurial process by immigrants (i.e. host country choice, entrepreneurial engagement, new venture creation, business network development and corporate political activities) and discusses the effects of immigrant entrepreneurs on their host countries.
The paper presents a review of literature on entrepreneurial migration and social impacts.
