Abstract [en]

This paper conducts an inductive case study to develop theory on the role of family in the host and home country in the process of immigrant entrepreneurs’ creation of entrepreneurial opportunities. We employ the perspectives of the opportunity creation process and family social capital. We conducted four cases of immigrant entrepreneurs from Lebanon, Syria, Cameroon and Mexico, that launched businesses in Sweden. Three sources of family social capital are acknowledged in the opportunity creation process: family duties, family trust and family support. Family duties stimulate the process of forming an entrepreneurial idea. This process is advanced by the existence of family trust. Next, immigrant entrepreneurs count on family support to launch the idea. By recognizing these sources of family social capital, we explain how families in the host and home country contribute to immigrant entrepreneurs’ opportunity creation.
