Immigrants in urban areas tend to establish businesses at higher rates than the native-born population, and their entrepreneurial behavior has substantive impacts on the economic, social, cultural, and physical landscape of hosting cities around the world. This presentation will introduce the theories and evidence around various dimensions of immigrant entrepreneurship including economic development, community building, transnational activities, high-technology, and urban policy.
