Female entrepreneurship in research


What is the scientific contribution of the publications which have been produced in the context of the Diana Project and the international Diana Conference? Candida G. Brush, Patricia G. Greene (both Babson College Wellesley/USA) and Prof. Dr. Friederike Welter (IfM Bonn/University of Siegen) show in their article "The Diana project: a legacy for research on gender in entrepreneurship" the start and the successful development of the Diana Project since 1999. At the same time, they describe the areas in which they see further research.

In an other article, Prof. Dr. Friederike Welter gives an overview over the developments in context research on female entrepreneurship: While the focus was initially on the challenges facing women entrepreneurs, recent research results show now how they influence their contexts.
Both articles are published in the online edition of "International Journal of Gender and Entrepreneurship" in January.
