  • Gender, leadership and venture capital: measuring women’s leadership
           in VC firm portfolios
    • First page: 110
      Abstract: International Journal of Gender and Entrepreneurship, Volume 9, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose This paper presents a new index summarizing Women's Leadership in Entrepreneurial Ventures (WLEV) in the context of Venture Capital (VC) firm portfolios. Gender representation among VC portfolio firms is a concern for academics, and increasingly for practitioners aiming to reap the benefits of gender diversity. Design/methodology/approach Drawing on Institutional Theory and Gender Role Congruity Theory, we present dimensions of women's involvement in leadership roles in VC funded companies. As previous research has not provided standard definitions, we clarify the relevant dimensions. In addition, we present an empirical analysis of 153 VC fund portfolios and demonstrate women's involvement across the three key dimensions forming the WLEV Index: involvement in leadership, management, and founding of portfolio companies. Findings We present a summary Women's Leadership in Entrepreneurial Ventures Index aligned with previous research. The Index has suitable characteristics for future research and introduce a first comparison with existing statistics. Our findings show relatively low scores of women's leadership in the VC portfolio companies investigated, especially as compared to average US companies. Originality/value This paper introduces standardized definitions for women’s leadership in terms of: women-led, women-founded and women-managed. This paper also introduces a methodology and constructs an index to uniformly compare VC firm portfolio companies according to all three dimensions of women’s leadership. These contributions can be expected to form the basis of future research on gender representation in VC portfolio companies.

  • Performance and financing strategies of female and male entrepreneurs in
           the Republic of Serbia
    • First page: 136
      Abstract: International Journal of Gender and Entrepreneurship, Volume 9, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose The paper examines gender differences in the performance and financing strategies of female and male entrepreneurs in the Republic of Serbia. The aim of the study is to explore the gender dimension - a much under-researched aspect of entrepreneurship in the Republic of Serbia - and to link the findings with those of other environments. Design/methodology/approach In order to explore gender based differences in entrepreneurial activity, a random sample of 327 units was drawn from the Serbian Business Registers Agency’s Register of Companies. One hundred and one completed questionnaires were received. The Chi-square test of association was used to assess the relationship between two categorical variables, while the non-parametric Mann-Whitney U test was used to assess the statistical importance of the differences between groups of female and male entrepreneurs. The relationship between the performance and different sources of financing was assessed by multiple regression analysis. Findings The results confirm the existence of a gender gap in the net profit, employment growth rate, ROA and in use of various types of alternative financing sources. The evidence shows that those male entrepreneurs who use personal funds achieve lower levels of net profit and ROA, compared to those who use internal business sources. Lower ROA is also achieved by those male entrepreneurs who use alternative sources of financing, relative to those who do not use these sources. Female entrepreneurs who applied for bank loans realized higher net profit value compared to those who did not apply for a loan. Moreover, female entrepreneurs who use some kind of state supported funding achieve higher ROA than those who do not. Other gender differences found regarding the various aspects of the financing practices lacked statistical significance. Originality/value Although the generalizability of part of the findings is weakened due to the lack of statistical significance, most of the expected gender differences were found to exist at the sample level. This encourages further studies of similarities and differences between female and male entrepreneurs’ financing strategies and their impact on business performance. This is particularly important for the environments in which the gender aspect of entrepreneurial activity is under-researched.

  • Dynamics of female-owned smallest businesses in the U.S.
    • First page: 157
      Abstract: International Journal of Gender and Entrepreneurship, Volume 9, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose This study attempts to answer 1) whether the female-owned smallest firms differ from their male-owned counterparts in terms of their success and performances; 2) if so, whether it affects banks’ loan approval decisions. Design/methodology/approach The study uses the Kauffman Firm Survey - the largest and longest longitudinal data which contains 4,928 new firms that started their business in the U.S. in 2004. We use two measures of median asset values to classify firms into smallest firm category. We use multiply imputed logit estimates to predict the probability of loan approval in each category. Findings Our results show that female-owned smallest firms have significantly lower rate of loan approval. In addition, the study finds minority women owners face double burden. However, married women have significantly higher probability of loan approval. Our results are robust. Research limitations/implications From public policy perspective, providing equal access to credit to women business owners, especially unmarried and/or minority women, may solve the puzzle why female-owned firms are so small. Originality/value Although many studies examined why businesses owned by women are typically smaller compared to men-owned firms, there exist limited studies on female-owned smallest firms and why they stay smaller. This this study fills the gap in the literature by examining female-owned smallest businesses.

  • Satisfactions comparisons: women with families, full-time and part-time
           self-employed
    • First page: 171
      Abstract: International Journal of Gender and Entrepreneurship, Volume 9, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose In spite of numerous political initiatives, the proportion of self-employed women in Germany has stagnated. This article offers a new perspective on this problem. The investigation and data gathered about job and life satisfaction of women with families can provide information on the reasons for starting a business and the low participation of women in entrepreneurial activity.     Design/methodology/approach After a literature review, representative German panel data is analysed to investigate the job and life satisfaction of full- and part-time self-employed women with a family. Findings Self-employed women with families who work full-time are more satisfied with their jobs than those who work part-time. There is no statistically significant difference between these two groups with respect to their life satisfaction. Research limitations/implications An implication of the results suggests new ideas and a new focus by policy makers and politicians when trying to increase the quantity of women with families engaging in self-employment. A limitation is that a lack of ‘within’ variation in the data means that the panel nature of the survey cannot be usefully incorporated into the investigation. Originality/value Until now there is limited research about the work and life satisfaction of women with a family comparing full and part-time self-employment. This analysis is potentially valuable because the number of part-time self-employed women is substantially higher than the number of full-time self-employed women. We find evidence that such women may instead prefer full-time self-employment.

  • Entrepreneuring entrepreneurship diversity through critical theory and
           reflexivity
    • First page: 188
      Abstract: International Journal of Gender and Entrepreneurship, Volume 9, Issue 2, June 2017.
      Purpose To raise awareness of the conflicts between innovation ideologies fundamental to entrepreneurial theory, and the exclusivity embedded in the discipline’s research and discursive practices. Design/methodology/approach The paper draws upon entrepreneurship and critical theory literature to deconstruct some embedded assumptions within that inhibit the participation of women as entrepreneurs. Findings The underrepresentation of female and minority entrepreneurs has been examined by researchers most often from the perspective of trying to discover and overcome barriers to participation, rather than seeking to understand why and how these barriers are created and sustained. The paper identifies processes contributing to the construction of obstacles inhibiting inclusivity and proposes that conscientious implementation of practices such as critical reflexivity can limit their reproduction. Research limitations/implications The underrepresentation of female and minority entrepreneurs has been examined by researchers most often from the perspective of trying to discover and overcome barriers to participation, rather than seeking to understand why and how these barriers are created and sustained. The paper identifies processes contributing to the construction of obstacles inhibiting inclusivity and proposes that conscientious implementation of practices such as critical reflexivity can limit their reproduction. Research limitations/implications – By situating critical theory and reflexivity as key practices for cultivating diversity and innovation in entrepreneurship, this paper offers a useful basis for expanding subsequent research and pedagogical practices that are representative of a wider variety of populations and activities. Practical implications Entrepreneurship is key to job creation and economic growth. Rigid conceptualizations of entrepreneurs, entrepreneurship and unexamined biases of scholars and educators limit the accessibility of research and constrain students’ entrepreneurial intentions and behaviors. Originality/value The paper fills a gap in the literature by exploring disciplinary practices that cultivate and sustain gender exclusivity. It provides a structured approach to understanding discrepancies between the innovation entrepreneurship idealizes and the practices that confine participation to specific populations and economic practices.

  • The influence of sex and gender-role orientation in the decision to become
           an entrepreneur
    • First page: 8
      Abstract: International Journal of Gender and Entrepreneurship, Volume 9, Issue 1, March 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to explore the relationship between sex, gender-role orientation and the decision to become an entrepreneur. Due to the fact that gender stereotypes have influences on the preferences and choices of individuals in their career this research proposes the following objectives: (1) to determine the existence of gender stereotypes that have influence on human behavior and specially in this research context; (2) to measure the gender-role orientation of each individual and, finally, (3) to analyze the relationship between the entrepreneurial intention, the sex and the gender-role orientation of participants. Design/methodology/approach Based on a questionnaire, this article follows the Bem Sex-Role Inventory methodology to perform an analysis by means of multiple regression model. This study uses two different samples of 760 students who attend Business Administration and Management undergraduate programs. Findings The outcomes show that gender-role orientation is a better predictor of the decision to become an entrepreneur than biological sex. Moreover, the results for whole sample confirm the relationship between masculine and androgynous gender-role orientation with entrepreneurial intention, while there is also evidence of feminine gender-role orientation when we consider only women. Research limitations/implications In line with previous studies that link gender-role orientation and entrepreneurship, in this paper we have analyzed Business Administration students’ view to draw our conclusions. The next step is to apply the gender perspective to advance in the analysis of the features that characterize business managers. Likewise, it is interesting to continue the study of gender social construction in entrepreneurship focusing on the discourse used by entrepreneurs or in the media. Practical implications Our conclusions are relevant for educators and trainers of future entrepreneurs. The entrepreneurial archetype evolves from masculinity to androgyny. This may help women entrepreneurial intentions. Emphasizing androgynous traits is a way to disable male stereotype domination and threat. This possibility is open, not only for educators who have the ability to improve this perception, but also for media, advertising companies and women to push and value female entrepreneurship. Originality/value Selecting 31 items related with the entrepreneur person, this work tests empirically their gender categorization. This procedure allows us to measure participants' gender-role orientation following the four gender categories and classify them by sex. Finally we analyze the influence than gender-role orientation and sex exert over entrepreneurial intention and provide empirical evidence in favor that gender-role orientation is a more robust variable to predict entrepreneurial intention than sex, and androgynous gender-role orientation is the most influential category on entrepreneurial intention.

  • Factors affecting the success of women’s entrepreneurship: a review
           of literature
    • First page: 31
      Abstract: International Journal of Gender and Entrepreneurship, Volume 9, Issue 1, March 2017.
      Purpose Women entrepreneurship has grown significantly all over the world and it is widely established that entrepreneurship is important for economic growth and wealth. Despite those facts, women´s participation in entrepreneurship is lower than men´s in almost all societies. That phenomena get the attention of scholars from diverse disciplines, all of them interested in the behaviour and profile of female entrepreneurs and their business success rates. Several isolated factors were studied, with positive and negative effects on each stage of the entrepreneur process, for women entrepreneurs, so the aim of this research is identify, classify by their impact and organize those factors in relation to the stages of the entrepreneur process. Design/methodology/approach The literature on factors affecting female entrepreneurship produced since January 2010 until October 2015 is analyzed to define entrepreneurial success, identify factors affecting success at each stage of the entrepreneurial process and propose an organize those factors at individual and environment levels. Findings Several factors affecting female entrepreneurial success at each stage of the entrepreneurship process were found and organized in at the internal (individual), micro, meso and macro environment level. In the literature reviewed the most considered factors are: at the internal level, human capital: education and experience, with effects on the opportunity identification stage of the entrepreneurial process, and at the micro environment level, access to resources with effects on the opportunity recognition, acquiring resources and entrepreneurial performance stages, both with influence on quantitative and qualitative indicators of success Originality/value Propose an integrated classification and an array for all those factors that have influence on women’s entrepreneurship and its success, relating those to the entrepreneurship process

  • Academic entrepreneurial intention: the role of gender
    • First page: 66
      Abstract: International Journal of Gender and Entrepreneurship, Volume 9, Issue 1, March 2017.
      Purpose The objective of this article is firstly to analyze whether the determining factors of the entrepreneurial intention of academics are the same for men and women and test whether their degree of importance varies depending on gender, and secondly to test whether the lesser entrepreneurial intention of women detected in previous studies is due to the lesser presence of the determining factors of entrepreneurial intention among women or, on the contrary, is determined by the existence of implicit barriers that do not depend on these factors. Design/methodology/approach After conducting a survey on a sample of 1178 academics, the results of a linear regression model confirm the hypothesis that female academics have less of an entrepreneurial intention. Findings Moreover, through the Blinder-Oaxaca decomposition it is observed that this lesser female entrepreneurial behavior is not due to the absence of any of the factors considered as determinants of entrepreneurial intention, but instead is related to the existence of implicit barriers for women that influence their entrepreneurial intention. Originality/value To the best of our knowledge this is the first time that a study of this nature has been conducted internationally. Unlike other studies on academic entrepreneurship, we do not restrict the sample to one or two universities but rather aim the study at all universities in Spain and, therefore, at all academics from all branches of knowledge.

  • Connecting gender identity, entrepreneurial training, role models and
           intentions
    • First page: 87
      Abstract: International Journal of Gender and Entrepreneurship, Volume 9, Issue 1, March 2017.
      Purpose The current research aims to establish the antecedents of the entrepreneurial intentions in the case of youth beneficiaries of entrepreneurial higher education studies and/or entrepreneurial role models, being grounded in the theoretical framework of rational action and planned behavior (TPB) reference model (Ajzen 1991, 2002). Design/methodology/approach The quantitative study took place in the biggest academic center in the western part of Romania, by applying a questionnaire based survey between 2008 and 2015 on 650 students, both female and male participants. The authors’ research endeavor to model different types of factors influencing entrepreneurial intentions, required the assessment of alternative configuration models via structural equation modeling, completed with several statistical tools, including descriptive statistics, scale reliability, factor and validity analysis, respectively pairwise critical ratio differences. Findings At the level of investigated sample, composed of 650 students from the Timişoara academic center, the empirical results of the study highlighted that: (i) entrepreneurial higher education training and behavioral characteristics are significant and direct predictors of entrepreneurial intentions; (ii) behavioral characteristics also mediates the influence of psychological characteristics and of parental or social environmental specific entrepreneurial role models on entrepreneurial intentions; (iii) gender identity is a moderator, differentiating the direct effects of entrepreneurial education and behavioral characteristics on entrepreneurial intentions. Research limitations/implications The proposed research model does not seek to explain the inclination of the surveyed students to act according to their entrepreneurial intention; also the obtained empirical results cannot be generalized due to the restricted sample size. The theoretical utility of the research regards the predictability enhancement of the reference TPB model on identifying the antecedents of entrepreneurial intentions in diverse national contexts and investigated populations. At practical level, the study sustains the importance of tertiary entrepreneurial education in stimulating youth’s entrepreneurial intentions, especially for women; along with the detection of motives of preferring an entrepreneurial career and sustaining it through personalized entrepreneurial education programs. Originality/value The papers originality is conferred by the: (i) large, comprehensive and relevant investigation sphere of the direct, mediator and moderator influencing factors of entrepreneurial intentions in the case of youth; respectively by (ii) research methodology applying four configuration models, along with (iii) the empirical analysis performed via structural equation modeling and multigroup moderation. The value of the paper consists in its’ theoretical and empirical contribution on investigating and enhancing the role of entrepreneurial spirit stimulating academic education for specific contexts and investigated groups.
