In this article, we examine how returnee entrepreneurs seek to capitalize on translocal
affiliations by deploying different forms of capital in their business practices.
Based on a case study of returnees in Ghana's creative industries, the article identifies
three practices through which entrepreneurs configure capital to seize opportunities
and deal with challenges of running a business as a returnee. The practice ofcompensatingencompasses
efforts at compensating for encountered obstacles in Ghana by taking advantage of
unique translocal positions.Fusinginvolves creatively blending local and foreign aesthetics
and business approaches, whileswitchingimplies adapting to social situations through
changing bodily appearances and speech. The findings demonstrate that using capital
back home is not merely a matter of transferring capital from abroad, but a translocal
practice where capital is carefully configured. We highlight the importance of paying
analytical attention to multiple sites of engagement and foreground African returnee
entrepreneurs as transnational actors.
