Immigrant entrepreneurs more business confident

Entrepreneurs who immigrated to Canada are more optimistic about doing business here than those born in Canada, according to a new UBC Okanagan study.

The study was reported in Castanet and Kelowna Now.

“While a total of 62 per cent of immigrants believed their business would grow moving forward, only 38 per cent of non-immigrant entrepreneurs shared the optimism,” said researcher and UBCO professor Carlos Teixeira.
