dc.description.abstract Even though God has ordained migration which has changed human history, rationalism, capitalism, liberalisation and technological innovation are central driving forces of globalization, and have positively impacted on global migration. Regardless of their entrepreneurial engagement, the presence of immigrants, including those from Congo-Brazzaville in South Africa, is often associated with an increasing unemployment rate; therefore, Congolese immigrants have become easy targets of blame for everything that has gone wrong in Cape Town. Therefore, the current authors believe that technological innovation, namely e-commerce could enable Congo-Brazzaville immigrant entrepreneurs, who are often accused of taking South African jobs, to plan for returning home. The main objective of this study was to analyse the benefits of online business registration for Congo- Brazzaville immigrant entrepreneurs in Cape Town. In order to obtain a clearer idea, the study focused on the junction of two strands, namely online company registration from both inductive and deductive perspectives. This paper utilised both qualitative and quantitative research methods. For research purposes, a self-administered questionnaire was utilised. The research target population included Congo-Brazzaville immigrant entrepreneurs in Cape Town, which is where the study was conducted. The purposeful sampling method was utilised with a sample size N = 116. The samples were sought from the general population of Congolese immigrant entrepreneurs who are also members of the Congolese Association of Cape Town. en_US
