Abstract: With an increasing mobility of populations, particularly through globalisation and international migration, there has been a growth of immigrant entrepreneurs in host countries, including a minority group of female immigrant entrepreneurs. This latter group has not been adequately investigated, even though these female immigrant entrepreneurs contribute significantly to the economy of the host country. This article explores female immigrant entrepreneurship in Aotearoa New Zealand and provides two brief case studies of Chinese immigrant women who have set up their own businesses.

Keywords: female entrepreneurship; immigrant women; New Zealand; immigrants; China; female entrepreneurs; women entrepreneurs; immigrant entrepreneurs.
