There is now some consensus that women do not lack entrepreneurial ability but gendered disadvantages constrain their accrual of entrepreneurial resources to start and grow their ventures. A key resource in this process being finance; evidence indicates that women owned ventures are under-capitalised at start-up which in turn, has implications for sustainability and scalability.
Within this seminar we will explore the relationship between gender, women, finance and entrepreneurial activity drawing upon presentations from international researchers, practitioners and industry experts. Outlines for PowerPoint presentations from doctoral students and early career researchers to discuss their research around this topic are invited. Please contact Professor Susan Marlow for details.
