This paper investigates the succession process as perceived and lived by daughters taking over the family business, with a gender perspective. Despite the rich literature on the succession process in family firms, few studies use a gender approach, though an increasing number of ventures are launched, taken over and managed by women, largely contributing to the economic development. In line with Dumas (1998), Barbot et al. (2005) and Vera & Dean (2005), our research aims at analyzing the succession process when daughters take over the family business. Our contribution is a gender analysis of the process, including the social phenomena of separation and hierarchy, with a focus on family composition. Using the model of Cadieux et al. (2000), we identify at each stage of the succession process, the key actors of the environment, we analyze their interactions and see how they open opportunities or rise difficulties in terms of legitimacy for daughters. The qualitative thematic analysis of eleven detailed case studies reveals a strong influence of the presence or absence of a son on the motivations and positioning of daughters, as well as on the construction of their legitimacy towards family and stakeholders. This study leads to several implications for public and private initiatives. [less ▲]

Les femmes optent de plus en plus souvent pour le statut d'indépendante et, trop rarement encore, pour le statut de "chef d'entreprise". Cet article cherche à identifier les caractéristiques de l’entrepreneuriat féminin : caractéristiques des femmes entrepreneures, caractéristiques liées au type d’activité entrepreneuriale qu’elles vont choisir et stratégies mises en oeuvre pour réussir leur projet (financement, formation et réseaux). Cet article est fondé sur une recherche quantitative et qualitative, réalisée à partir d’un échantillon de femmes entrepreneures wallonnes (Belgique). Celle-ci permet de montrer que le projet entrepreneurial des femmes a certes des similarités avec celui des hommes mais que certains choix et stratégies restent marqués par des rapports sociaux de genre. Ceci plaide pour une approche de l’entrepreneuriat qui intègre ces réalités de genre. [less ▲]

Cette communication présente des résultats de recherche afférant à la reprise d’entreprise familiale par des filles d’entrepreneurs. Nous identifions les différentes stratégies mises en oeuvre par les femmes repreneuses dans ce contexte d’entreprise familiale pour asseoir leur crédibilité et affirmer leur identité de femmes chefs d’entreprise. Ces stratégies peuvent se concevoir en termes de choix des personnes-clés dans leur entourage, de développement de compétences spécifiques, de gestion des ressources humaines, ou de comportements en matière financière et bancaire.

While women-owned ventures represent an increasing proportion of new businesses in most western countries, most of them have particular financing patterns and encounter barriers in their access to financing. Recent research on the question argues that barriers to financing are mainly dependent on factors other than gender, such as owner- and firm-related characteristics. This quantitative and qualitative study, through descriptive statistics and interview analysis, examines the relationship between financing patterns and barriers and gender from the woman entrepreneur's viewpoint. It explores the behaviours and representations of women entrepreneurs towards financing, and considers to what extent the women see their own approaches as being different from those of men. Our study suggests that a gender effect still exists, and tries to identify its location and the corresponding implications for further research and action. [less ▲]

Our paper presents some results from a research on women's entrepreneurship in Belgium, which is part of a wider project called “Diane”, which took place within the framework of an equal opportunity action. We choose to expose one of the most interesting aspects of this research on women’s entrepreneurship : financing. The main question of our research was to enquire whether there are any specificities in the women’s entrepreneurship in Belgium as regards the financing of their firms. First, we investigated the amounts that female entrepreneurs invested for the start-up and development of their firms. Second, we aimed to determine which financing sources were used by female entrepreneurs. Finally, we enquired whether they had access to external financing, and more specifically to bank loans. Our results show that female entrepreneurs have mainly recourse to their personal savings or to family and friends’ loans to finance the company start-up and development. But they use also bank loans in a great extent for their firm launching. Nevertheless, it seems that they apply for bank loans only if they have no other choice, due to their strong risk-aversion and their lack of trust toward bankers. These reasons also lead them to invest lower amounts in the start-up and development of their companies. Female entrepreneurs face a lot of barriers to bank financing. There are several specific financing problems for female entrepreneurs, related to some of their firm’s characteristics, especially the field of activity and the size. Some gender characteristics can also be barriers to financing. On the basis of our results, we draw some recommendations for public authorities. [less ▲]

Our research project aims to inquire whether there are any specificities in female entrepreneurship and if necessary to point them out. Our study will take different angles: first, the women-owned societies’ profile, second the women entrepreneurs’ business processes and finally the women entrepreneurs’ profile. Tools will be shaped in accordance with this analysis, in order to increase the awareness of women and intermediates of business creation and development. [less ▲]
