ABSTRACT The purpose of this study is to better understand and examine how human capital and social capital influence individuals to become entrepreneurs in the foreign contexts. Initially, I designed a quantitative study to explore whether any and if so to what extent human capital and social capital positively predict the foreigners’ entrepreneurial intention. However, the empirical results contradict with my early prediction as I found a statistically significant negative relationship between human capital and entrepreneurial intention and statistically non-significant relationship between social capital and entrepreneurial intention. This inspires me to design a follow-up qualitative study. I interviewed three real foreign entrepreneurs in Taiwan in an attempt to understand their personal accounts for being foreign entrepreneurs in Taiwan. Their personal accounts enable me to rethink the meaning of human capital and social capital in the context of their lives and entrepreneurial experience and to identify a new construct, environmental opportunities, to explain the foreign entrepreneurship.
