AbstractStudies on second-generation immigrant entrepreneurs remain limited in both the Dutch and international literature. This study presents one of the first explicit comparisons between first and second-generation self-employed immigrants and provides a vivid, longitudinal view of first and second-generation immigrant entrepreneurs, their incorporation into Dutch society, their businesses and business development(s). It differs from more traditional works on immigrant entrepreneurship, such as Ethnic Economies (Light and Gold 2000) and Through the eye of the Needle (Waldinger 1986), as the focus is on immigrant entrepreneurs active in other than the typical immigrant sectors such as the retail or garment industry.
