Women's entrepreneurship

July 2015

Closing the gender gap in access to financial and other services and in social entrepreneurship.

Generally, there are fewer women entrepreneurs compared to men in the E.U., which is why the European Parliament released a study about the differences between men and women entrepreneurs and social entrepreneurs in order to improve the situation and to push member states towards more initiatives in favour of women entrepreneurship. The report is based on four case study: Czech Republic, Italy, Sweden and the United Kingdom and explores the barriers and discriminatory effects that hinders women's entrepreneurship.
