L’expérience migratoire est-elle une source de potentialités pour l’entrepreneur ? Le cas marocain

Abstract : The aim of this article is to find out what level of potentialities migrant entrepreneurs have when they come back home as compared to their local peers. A synthesis of the main research projects about characteristics and actions of entrepreneurs has led us to establish the concept of entrepreneurial potentialities. The theoretical corpus thus obtained is completed by a resource-based approach extended to the effectual entrepreneur model. This theoretical corpus is supported by the revised Gasse survey, which has been given out to a sample of 393 Moroccan entrepreneurs, shared as LAM (40%) and Locals (60%).The LAM are the Living Abroad Moroccans, coming back to Morocco to settle their own company. The Locals are those who have always lived in Morocco and who are entrepreneurs. The 393 surveys are submitted to multi-dimensional and in-depth data analysis techniques. The results obtained confirm our initial hypothesis: living abroad Moroccans have a higher level of potentialities than local entrepreneurs when coming back home. Such results highlight new parameters that could help with internal support programmes. Those results lead to a more global approach of returning migration entrepreneurship, an approach that brings together fact-, action – and process – paradigms.
