Experimental evidences show migrants are more likely than natives to become
entrepreneur in the host country. This trend is true for small and in some cases
medium sized businesses and there for migrants have the potential to help develop
domestic market. The key reasons for this phenomenon include good business intelligence, the need to work harder to keep their position, more competitive and sustainable advantages in their competition, low survival rates for migrants, know well the risk when they are in self-employment, and illegal, informal or unusual activities.
These elements encourage the migrants to be more entrepreneurs. But there is an important question: "How the host country can benefit from this entrepreneurship resource and capability?" In some developing countries a huge group of migrants from different countries are living and working but in many cases the host country cannot manage this human capital effectively.
This proposal is an attempt to prepare a map to answer the following questions: 1) How host countries can discover the entrepreneurship of migrants?, 2) How this opportunity can manage considering beneficiary of both migrants and host country?, and 3) How the host county can organize an entrepreneurship market to exchange
innovations towards two groups?
