The relation between gender and entrepreneurship is a well-researched and a very contemporary topic. Henry (2013), Shinnar and Giacomin (2012), Boyd (2005), Díaz-García, Jiménez-Moreno (2010), Lerner and Pines (2010), Gupta, Turban and Wasti (2009), Wilson, Pines & Schwartz (2008), Kickul and Marlino (2007), Verheul et al, (2006),Bruni, Gherardi and Poggio (2004), Mueller (2004), Hielman and Chen (2003), Muravyev (2007), Fischer, Reuber and Dyke (1985) are some of the researchers who have studied this area extensively.

Though the relation between gender and entrepreneurship is a well-cited topic, this special issue focuses on Cross Cultural Perspectives.

There are several studies examining cross-cultural aspects of entrepreneurs (Gupta and Fernandez, 2009; Mueller and Thomas, 2001), gender and entrepreneurship (Thébaud, 2010), gender stereotypes and entrepreneurship (Gupta, Turban and Wasti, 2009).

However, limited researchers like that of Mueller and Dato-on (2010) are found studying the gender stereotypes and entrepreneurship in cross cultural perspectives.

Therefore, this special issue will make original contribution to this area.

This special edition, Gender and Entrepreneurship in Cross Cultural Perspectives, endeavours to provide an international platform to academicians, research scholars and practioners from across the world to contribute their scholarly research and to lead in the advancement of inter-disciplinary research of gender studies, entrepreneurship and cross-cultural management, for the benefit of academia, business and society at large, by publishing theoretical, empirical, experimental and applied research.

This aim will be met by getting scholarly research contributions from good researchers in the various areas of management.

  1. Women Entrepreneurs across cultures: Issues and Challenges

Women Entrepreneurship Conference Bangkok – Call for Papers

Posted on Updated on

Abstract Submission Deadline 4th May [UPDATE: DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 20th MAY]

This British Council supported conference invites papers that explore female entrepreneurship. According to the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor GEM, Thailand does not only have the world’s highest rate of women entrepreneurship, but it is also one of the only countries in the world where both nascent and established female business owners outnumber their male counterparts.

The conference invites participants from both UK and Thai institutions to advance understanding of female entrepreneurship in Thailand, the UK and other cultural settings. Emphasis is placed on analysing the strengths, challenges and business models of female entrepreneurs as well as strategies to promote and support women entrepreneurship. 

The three-day conference is intended for early-career researchers in UK and Thai academic institutions (Post-Docs and within the first 10 years of their career), although applications from advanced researchers as well as PhD candidates who are in their final year are also considered. The conference will provide participants with workshop-style feedback on their papers, offer career guidance by senior researchers in the field and facilitate the building of UK-Thai research collaborations. Participants will also have the opportunity to apply their insights and skills during a practitioner day at Samutprakarn Crocodile Farm and Zoo Co., where they will get the chance to meet the successful and famous Thai female entrepreneur Patcharapimol Youngprapakorn.

Feedback will be given by fellow students and three internationally reputed researchers:

  • Prof. Erkko Autio, Chair in Technology Venturing and Entrepreneurship, Imperial College Business School, London
  • Prof. Susan Marlow, Professor in Entrepreneurship, Nottingham University 
  • Dr. Koson Sapprasert, Director of Research at BUSEM and GEM Thailand, Bangkok University

We welcome empirical and conceptual abstracts from early-career researchers (Post-Docs). Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

  • Women entrepreneurship 
  • Cross-cultural studies in entrepreneurship (with a particular focus on comparisons between the UK and East-Asia)
  • Female entrepreneurship and innovation 
  • Business models and strategies, what we can learn from female entrepreneurs 
  • Policies and practices for women entrepreneurship 
  • Gender, identity and leadership 
  • Big data: Evidence on women entrepreneurship from GEM and GEDI
