Abstract: The following paper describes the results of a??qualitative study involving in-depth interviews on 20 Vietnamese entrepreneurs operating in Poland. The aim of the study was to characterize the society of Vietnamese entrepreneurs in Poland. To achieve the goal, the Author used during the conversation a??metaphor of the animal to deepen the discussion. The respondents were asked to compare the Vietnamese entrepreneurs to the animal and justify the features assigned to them. Some respondents noticed that the first and second generation of immigrants are different in terms of diligence, leisure time and approach to money. For some of the Vietnamese, the community was homogenous regardless of whether it was the first or the second generation. Despite presenting different animals, the features they describe are consistent. The study shows how Vietnamese entrepreneurs perceive their community.
