Languages of publication
entrepreneurship and small business management. The articles included here have been submitted by authors doing their research in Germany, Malta, Poland, the UK, the USA, in multiple contexts and cultures. The topics included cover family business, immigrant entrepreneurship, sustainable tourism in a small territory context, and competitiveness among enterprises and at universities. The first paper, authored by Yoon G. Lee and Myung-Soo Lee, entitled “The Impact of Business Ownership Motives and Goals on Success in Immigrant Owned Family Businesses”, pictures how family business goals and ownership motivations influence family business satisfaction and business success. This work is strongly focused on the comparison between Mexican- -American and Korean-American family owned business. This contribution is particularly valuable as there is limited research on immigrant family firms owners in the USA. The findings show differences in family life satisfaction, which is higher among Mexican-American immigrant family business owners than among Korean-American ones. The article also shows that a higher level of business ownership and related motives significantly determine how migrants perceive their business success.
