Women represent the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs today. Despite the enormous economic contributions of this group, female entrepreneurship remains under-explored and inadequately covered in academic literature.

Female Entrepreneurship and New Venture Creation aims to address this gap by shedding light on the unique aspects of female entrepreneurship. Tracing women’s journey along the venture creation process, Kariv’s book:

  • highlights the creatively different ways in which women approach the entrepreneurial enterprise;
  • takes into account different environmental and cultural constraints that impact female entrepreneurship;
  • provides a theoretical framework for the venture creation process that is practical and broadly applicable;
  • includes in-depth case studies drawn from contributors around the world.

This book captures the diversity of female entrepreneurship and provides a valuable synthesis of the insights that emerge from the stories of women entrepreneurs around the world. It will be a valuable resource for students of entrepreneurship, as well as professionals.
