Abstract

ELIE stands for Employability: Learning from International Entrepreneurship and is an European Union Erasmus funded project. Our aim is to capture the lived experiences of immigrant entrepreneurs in order to develop learning materials for potential entrepreneurs and students and to advise policy makers and regulators on how best to support entrepreneurs. This report contain 40 case studies collated from 200 interviews conducted in four EU countries, the UK, Greece, Finland and Poland, amongst immigrant entrepreneurs. The interviews showed a remarkable level of common experience across all four countries, and as a result we have been able to develop a taxonomy of routes into entrepreneurship and typologies of entrepreneurship that have been used as an organizing structure within this report. We believe this report will be of use to others researching and working in the area of of international entrepreneurship.
