Migrant entrepreneurship is a phenomenon that has gained increasing attention from scholars, policymakers, and practitioners in recent years (Naudé et al., 2017; Solano et al., 2023) due to the growth of the small business sector and the supportive business environment in today’s society. It encompasses the entrepreneurial endeavours of migrants who have established businesses in their adopted homes (Naudé et al., 2017). However, despite the promising economic and social advantages associated with migrant entrepreneurs, they face various modern challenges that hinder their success and limit their growth opportunities. This notwithstanding, migrant entrepreneurs often face marginalisation in mainstream discussions on entrepreneurship (Williams & Krasniqi, 2018).
To ensure the successful integration and prosperity of migrant entrepreneurs, it is necessary to understand their challenges and implement suitable solutions given the rising number of cross-border migrants (Williams & Krasniqi, 2018).
This call for papers intends to investigate the contemporary problems and solutions in migrant entrepreneurship, shedding light on the unique obstacles encountered by migrant entrepreneurs and suggesting novel strategies to promote their success.
This Special Issue explores the concept of entrepreneurship education and entrepreneurship ecosystem through the lenses of our esteemed contributors. As you are aware, entrepreneurship education and its antecedents have remained core discussions for governments and practitioners worldwide. Researchers in the Global South have argued that to escape the stranglehold of poverty, inequality, and unemployment, they need to invest their economies in entrepreneurial projects.
