Migrant women entrepreneurhip in OECD countries
Abstract:In recent years, the increasing ownership of businesses by women who are foreign‐born or have ethnic origins has emerged as a new phenomenon. This chapter investigates migrant women entrepreneurship from the perspective of motivation, driving forces and gender‐based differences. Based on several case studies from selected OECD countries, it analyses the factors that push migrant women towards entrepreneurship and that determine their entrepreneurial different behaviour compared to migrant men. This chapter also examines the evolution over time in the motivation and driving forces pushing migrant women towards entrepreneurship.
