Conquering Borders: Webinar Success

Posted on Updated on

The Gender and Enterprise Network (GEN) SIG is pleased to report the success of our recent webinar held at the 2017 ISBE conference in Belfast. Entitled ‘Conquering Borders: Gender, Entrepreneurship and Prosperity’, the webinar featured esteemed feminist scholars presenting their research on the interactions of gender and entrepreneurship in a variety of international contexts: the UK and EU, Africa and the Middle East. In keeping with the conference theme of ‘Borders, Prosperity, and Entrepreneurial Responses,’ the webinar format was intended to encourage connections and debates with colleagues around the world. With excellent presentations, a vibrant discussion and questions taken both in person and online, we were encouraged by the outcome and look forward to more. We thank the ISBE team for their support, our fantastic speakers and all those who participated. To view the webinar on Youtube, please use this link: https://youtu.be/GOOBXaesyY0

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 power point presentations from doctoral students and ECRs to discuss their research around this topic are invited.

Please contact Professor Susan Marlow for details.

There are a number of bursaries available to support travel costs for presenters, doctoral students and ECR attendees. Please indicate if you qualify for this on the registration form.
