Women's Entrepreneurship in the 21st Century: An International Multi-level Research Analysis is the fourth in the series of books produced in partnership with the Diana International Research Network. The volume takes a multi-dimensional approach to the central theme of gender and entrepreneurship today and in the future. The book takes a holistic approach to exploring, via empirical and theoretical lenses, why women's involvement in venture creation matters. It offers a contemporary and diverse range of topics, written by leading scholars, that builds on a tradition of previous Diana volumes. The chapters span a wide range of countries, methodologies, and levels of analysis, all designed to contribute to advancing understanding of women and their engagement with entrepreneurial endeavours. With its broad span of geographic relevance and research driven by empirical data, this book will prove an essential guide for academics, students and researchers in the field, as well as policymakers and practitioners.
