Juliana Conceição Noschang da Costa, Marcos Ferasso, José Roberto Frega

Resumo


This research aimed to verify the influence of three different variables on encouraging women to start a new business or to work on their own: a) citizens’ qualification in primary, secondary, and undergraduate education, b) entrepreneurship, creation, and continuity of firms; and c) social acceptance of women as entrepreneurs. We performed multiple linear regression on a sample of 1,672 respondents from 49 different countries. Results revealed that formal education helps to elucidate the encouragement of women to be entrepreneurs but is the social acceptance of entrepreneurs that play a more active role in the explanation of encouragement of women to start a new business. This research sheds lights on formal education of entrepreneurship studies and the propensity to become an entrepreneur by women.
