Immigrant self-employment and transnational practices : the case of Moroccan entrepreneurs in Amsterdam and Milan by Giacomo Solano( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This dissertation investigates the relationship between transnational practices and immigrant entrepreneurship, focusing more closely on immigrant entrepreneurs who own a business spanning across borders (i.e. transnational immigrant entrepreneurship), and comparing them with the general category of immigrant entrepreneurs - those focusing on the domestic market in their chosen country of immigration - (i.e. domestic immigrant entrepreneurs). In order to do that, the thesis illustrates the case of Moroccan entrepreneurs in Amsterdam and Milan (N=70). More in particular, the study explores how those immigrant entrepreneurs who own a cross-border business identify and seize business opportunities. The goal is to understand how this group diverges from the general category of immigrant entrepreneurs, and what are the different patterns of transnational immigrant entrepreneurship."--Samenvatting auteur

Social capital of entrepreneurs in a developing country: the effect of gender on access to and requests for resources( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

<p>This paper addresses gender differences in the social capital of entrepreneurs in a developing country. Social networks are often an important asset for accessing resources; however, they may also be a liability in developing countries, since entrepreneurs are often expected to support their contacts. Using a recent survey among urban and rural Ugandan entrepreneurs, we focus on the financial resources that entrepreneurs can obtain from their contacts on the one hand, and requests for financial support made to the entrepreneurs from these contacts on the other hand. Our results show that there are gender differences associated with access to, and requests for, financial resources.</p>
