The study analyses data obtained from the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) Spain 2009 Survey with regard to perceptions of risk in beginning a new venture. The study finds that immigrants to Spain, irrespective of their origin or ethnicity, are less likely than native Spaniards to perceive business creation as a risky situation. Moreover, the findings suggest that the perception of risk has a significant impact on the decision to engage in business start-up activity.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/43739||ISSN:||1554-7191||DOI:||10.1007/s11365-012-0220-9||Source:||International Entrepreneurship and Management Journal[ISSN 1554-7191],v. 10, p. 297-317|
