Indian women entrepreneurs in New Zealand
by Edwina Pio
International Journal of Business and Globalisation (IJBG), Vol. 1, No. 3, 2007

Abstract: Drawing upon findings from interviews, this paper explores the frontiers that Indian women immigrants in New Zealand face in their entrepreneurial endeavours in New Zealand. While research on ethnic minorities has emerged as a burgeoning stream in entrepreneurship and there is some amount of research on entrepreneurship among Polynesian peoples and Asians of Chinese origin in New Zealand, there seems to be a lacuna in the sphere of Indian women entrepreneurs. Utilising the theoretical framework of mixed embeddedness, this research offers insights into the psycho-social and economic frontiers experienced by Indian women entrepreneurs in New Zealand. The struggles and determination to achieve economic independence and self efficacy in the country of resettlement serve as a testimony to the possibility of permeable frontiers to facilitate minority ethnic enterprise.
