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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"No other book analyzes the trials and tribulations of women entrepreneurs as they seek to leverage their resources to launch and grow a venture. A must-read for policymakers and entrepreneurs alike."

---Mauro Guillen, Director of the Lauder Institute, Wharton Business School, USA, and author of Women Entrepreneurs (Routledge, 2013)

"This is truly an excellent global entrepreneurship book: the topic - women's entrepreneurship is important (and necessary) worldwide; the contributing authors are the experts from across the globe; and the book addresses entrepreneurial topics that affect everyone, in every country, i.e: constraints, opportunities, motives, core competencies, creativity, innovation, leadership and role models. The content will be inspirational to students, potential or existing entrepreneurs, and also useful for a wider range of stakeholders, for example policy makers and those engaged in regional economic development. Dr. Kariv and other contributing authors are to be congratulated on this timely and outstanding addition to our emerging knowledge about female entrepreneurship."

---Professor Teresa V. Menzies, Brock University, Canada
