This paper will examine the connection between remittances and entrepreneurship in developing nations. I will begin by providing an overview of previous academic literature and research on remittances, and then I will conduct a panel analysis of nations from the developing world, to test for the connection between remittances and entrepreneurship. I will do so using data from the World Bank on remittance payments, and from the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor on entrepreneurial attitudes and behaviors. From there, I will be able to state whether remittances really do serve as a factor for entrepreneurship rates, and what the results might mean for future research.
