<br/>This study is concentrated on understanding Diaspora entrepreneurship focusing on Nepalese entrepreneurs in Denmark. Only a few studies have been done understanding the motivational factors of Nepalese entrepreneurs. This study aims to understand the different motivational factor of diaspora entrepreneur as well as the cultural differences and environmental adoption of Diasporas. Further this study also highlights on the various factors that are constraining and preventing Nepalese diaspora entrepreneurship. A concise study has been done in the macro level theories of diaspora where as more focus is on cultural as well as push and pull aspects of entrepreneurship. <br/>The study has been conducted interviewing the 5 respondents among which 4 respondents are restaurant owner and 1 respondent owns a remittance company. Among the restaurants two of the restaurants are closed. The interview questions are open-ended and semi-structured. This study suggests that Nepalese entrepreneurs are motivated by not only a specific factor. However the cultural factor is seen to be the dominant reason for taking decisions regarding entrepreneurship. The respondents of this study are the entrepreneurs within Copenhagen. Further this study also underlines on the different constraints affecting the success of Nepalese entrepreneurs. The major factors found in this study is the improper understanding of the plans and policies, language, ineffective planning and less understands of the market.<br/>I hope that this study will be of great help for others who indented to carry further research in this particular topic. The findings have augmented how Nepalese entrepreneurs are motivated by different factors as well as help understand the various constraints affecting their success.<br/>
