Women entrepreneurs´ financing revisited: taking stock and looking forward

Do financing agencies discriminate against women entrepreneurs, or is this simply a perception? Does the persistent underrepresentation of women in the financing industry, especially in venture capital, play a role? Do women entrepreneurs have better access to new funding sources such as crowdfunding? What are the implications that research on financing women-owned businesses offer policy-makers and those supporting women entrepreneurs? In her editorial for the special issue "News perspectives on women entrepreneurs and finance" the authors endeavour to attend to some of these questions, and in so doing, encourage new perspectives on debates on gender and the financing of entrepreneurial ventures.
