Abstrakti

Migrant entrepreneurs proved to have various motivations for self-employment. In relevant
studies of the last four decades, these motivations have been traditionally classified into push and pull factors. In other words, entrepreneurial activities of migrants have been explained through a recognized opportunity or an economic necessity. Nevertheless, as research indicates reasons for self-employment are often mixed. Moreover, a clear distinction between pull and push factors remains a topic of hot debates. This article intends to make a contribution to the discussion on migrants’ motivations for entrepreneurship.
It also has an ambition to offer another perspective on both reasons for self-employment and migrant entrepreneurship per se.
