Abstract

A fronte di un netto calo del tasso di natalità delle imprese fondate da italiani, il numero di nuove imprese gestite da immigrati in Italia è in costante crescita. Oggi le imprese etniche sono in grado di fornire nuove tipologie di servizi e di estendere la varietà dei prodotti disponibili, anche sui mercati a cui accedono gli autoctoni. Il presente lavoro propone nuove evidenze empiriche per comprendere i percorsi evolutivi delle imprese etniche in Italia. L’indagine conferma che la valorizzazione delle risorse fisiche, conoscitive e finanziarie specifiche della comunità di origine conserva un ruolo rilevante per le motivazioni imprenditoriali degli immigrati. Allo stesso tempo, viene segnalata anche la presenza rapporti significativi e, talvolta, prevalenti con i mercati mainstream. Si osserva inoltre che una porzione delle imprese analizzate appare coerente con i modelli tradizionali che le-gano fortemente l’impresa etnica al network sociale della comunità di origine dell’imprenditore che l’ha fondata. Un segmento relativamente ampio di imprese, invece, sembra allontanarsi significativamente da questa rappresentazione fino a comprendere soluzioni che prevedono l’inclusione di individui (soci o addetti) nativi o provenienti da comunità diverse da quelle di origine dell’imprenditore. L’ipotesi di una crescente varietà delle forme organizzative dell’impresa gestita da immigrati riceve ampia conferma empirica.
