Abstract

Este trabajo analiza la relación entre el haber pasado por un proceso de migración y la percepción de riesgo a la hora de crear una empresa. Con el fin de validar empíricamente las hipótesis que se formulan, se utilizan los datos obtenidos por el proyecto Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) en España durante el año 2009. El análisis de los resultados revela que, con independencia del origen, es menos probable que los inmigrantes perciban la creación de una empresa como una situación arriesgada. Estos datos invitan a reflexionar sobre explicaciones relacionadas con el proceso de selección antes de salir de sus países de origen y el cambio de percepción del riesgo después del proceso migratorio. Así mismo, fruto del análisis de los resultados alcanzados, se plantean implicaciones prácticas significativas de cara a la formulación de estrategias y políticas orientadas a fomentar el emprendimiento en este colectivo. / This paper analyzes the relationship between the migration experience and the perception of risk when starting a business. In order to empirically validate the hypotheses formulated, this research uses data from the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) in Spain during 2009. The analysis made reveals that, regardless of origin, immigrants are less likely to perceive the creation of a company as a hazardous situation. These data prompt us to reflect on explanations related to the selection process before leaving their countries of origin and how immigrants change their perception of risk after the migration process. Likewise, the results obtained raises important practical implications facing the formulation of strategies and policies to foster entrepreneurship in this group.
