Being the “Other” in Entrepreneurship: A Study of the Contributions of the Often Doubly Discriminated Female Immigrants Across the Globe
Female immigrant entrepreneurship has tremendous impacts in qualitative and quantitative terms on both the host and sending countries, largely in a positive way. The contributions explored through the case studies in this book are job development and creation; keeping local suppliers in business; and financial payments to the host in rent, taxes, and interest on loans. These contributions keep the economy active and growing. The decision to consider looking at female immigrant entrepreneurship research as an ongoing project is a commendable one given that the current studies deserve to be furthered and new contexts considered in order to provide a firm foundation for relevant policy direction.
