Abstract: The text presents the results of a??qualitative study conducted on a??group of immigrant entrepreneurs from Vietnam and China who run their businesses in Poland. The team of researchers conducted a total of 24 in-depth interviews. Interviews were recorded, transcribed and analyzed against assumed research areas. For the needs of the text, the analysis will present the motives for starting own business by the selected group of immigrants in Poland and the link with their national culture. As it turns out, the motives will be very different depending on the ethnic group. It could be assumed that the culture of origin will be of great importance in the perception of entrepreneurship and in shaping the will to be an entrepreneur. Support from the ethnic community for running a company means that many people decide to take this risk, even if they did not necessarily have such plans before. Through the prism of analyzing entrepreneurial motives, we can observe different patterns of coping in the host country. The limitation of the study is the sample of respondents, which may not show the most common motives due to the targeted selection.
