dc.description.abstractThis study explores the concept of transnationalism through individual experiences of migrants from the community of Villa Sandino, Nicaragua that have become entrepreneurs as immigrants in the United States. Through semi-structured interviews, their unique entrepreneurial journeys and transnational engagement are examined using qualitative research methods. Both with-in and temporal cross case analyses were utilized to present a comprehensive investigation. Specifically, the determinants, motivations and strategies of these immigrant Latino entrepreneurs that participate in transnational engagement are observed. Also, the experiences of the immigrant entrepreneurs are explored to understand the local ecosystem and institutions that supports these individuals' entrepreneurial success in their receiving communities of San Francisco and Miami as well as investigate the concept of transnationalism from below.eng
