Immigrant entrepreneurs are vital to the US economy, accounting for 25% of new ventures in 2017. In Worcester, 36% of business owners are foreign-born. Albanian entrepreneurs have a longstanding economic influence in Worcester that deserves recognition due to their contribution to the city’s vitality. In cooperation with the Worcester Albanian Business Network, we conducted in-depth interviews with 11 Albanian entrepreneurs in Worcester who represent a wide range of industries and enterprises. These interviews are the foundation of a digital exhibition highlighting their journeys into and through entrepreneurship. These stories are designed to inspire, mentor, and support other entrepreneurs, while bolstering a sense of appreciation for immigrant entrepreneurship.
