Abstract


The migrant entrepreneur plays a crucial role in economic development of the city. However, scant attention has been given to the study of the characteristics of migrant entrepreneurs in the context of urban areas in Asia, especially in Indonesia. Therefore, this paper identifies the main characteristics of migrant entrepreneurs in South Jakarta. The research itself involves sixty-eight first-generation migrant entrepreneurs as respondents of the survey. The characteristics of migrant entrepreneurs are analysed using descriptive statistics method of frequency distribution analysis. The analysis has been conducted based on background characteristics, cultural characteristics, business-related goals, business strategy, and performance. The analysis has revealed that the existence of migrant entrepreneurs in Jakarta has a positive impact not only on the development of the city but also on the development of their own homeland.
