Abstract Are immigrants more enterprising than natives in Spain? How successful are migrant entrepreneurs compared to those who start businesses in their country of birth? With the growth of migration worldwide, questions such as these are garnering the attention of economists, policymakers and scholars. Born Entrepreneurs? asks how foreignness affects an immigrant's ability to launch and to grow a successful business. It also explores the economic and social benefits that immigrants might derive from self-employment and the unique factors at play in so-called ethnic and immigrant entrepreneurship.

De toename van wereldmigratie zorgt ervoor dat economen, beleidsmakers en academici steeds meer aandacht besteden aan immigranten en ondernemerschap. Zijn immigranten meer ondernemend dan autochtone Spanjaarden? Hoe succesvol zijn migrantenondernemers ten opzichte van ondernemers in land van herkomst?Born Entrepreneurs? bestudeert hoe het allochtoon-zijn een immigrant beïnvloedt om succesvol te gaan ondernemen. Ook komen de mogelijke economische en sociale voordelen van zelfstandige arbeid en de unieke factoren die een rol spelen bij het zogenoemde etnische en immigrante ondernemerschap aan de orde.
