This is a comparative study of entrepreneurs of Indian origin (first generation migrants from India) who are doing business in Christchurch, New Zealand and Melbourne, Australia. The study was undertaken in the cities of Christchurch and Melbourne with the purpose of finding out what motivates first generation immigrant entrepreneurs of Indian origin to take to business. The findings point to the differences in motivational factors between the two sets of first generation Indian migrant entrepreneurs interviewed in New Zealand and in Australia and the underlying environmental factors in operation.
