This chapter extends on existing critical entrepreneurship contributions to illustrate and analyse how diversity entrepreneurship stemming from diverse contexts can enhance understandings of entrepreneurship as a socially and culturally constructed phenomenon. The chapter first explores the perspectives of Indigenous entrepreneurs in Australia, and second the diverse experience of female Turkish entrepreneurial ‘others’ in both the UK and the Netherlands. Exploring the different roles played by different national contexts in shaping entrepreneurial agency and resistance, rich case study material is used to illustrate how diversity can assist minority entrepreneurs while at the same time also constraining opportunity. The chapter reveals how new takes on entrepreneurship in different locations and settings can reveal not only new forms of entrepreneurial diversity, but also the increasing diversity of how (and what) entrepreneuring can mean.
