"Global Entrepreneurship Monitor" 2012: Unternehmensgründungen durch Migranten



"Especially male immigrants from western and northern European countries set up their own businesses more often than local persons - whereas immigrants from other countries do not become self-employed any more often than local persons. Albeit, migrants generally start up their own business more often because they lack other perspectives as it is relatively difficult for them to find a job. Self-employment may be a way to market a qualification that is not certified according to Germany standards. These are results from the 2012 survey of the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) that is conducted yearly by the Institute for Employment Research (IAB) and the Leibniz-University Hanover." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
