This chapter explores the multifaceted trajectories of migrant women and their experiences of becoming entrepreneurs in non-metropolitan areas in the UK. In doing so, it makes an important contribution to knowledge on how peripheral contexts and personal circumstances shape, inhibit and enable the entrepreneurial identities of migrants and their life decisions, in particular migrant women. The chapter argues that for migrant women, entrepreneurship provides a path to not only challenge the deeply engrained barriers they experience in labour markets, but also a way to (re)connect with the self, family and community and find meaning in work.
