This chapter aims to depict the specific realities of female entrepreneurs and to understand the gender dynamics characterizing their entrepreneurial activity. To do so, we first define the boundaries of women's entrepreneurship, mobilizing European and American perspectives (section 1). Then, we give some keys to understand the social construction of gender in women's entrepreneurship (section 2). In the next sections of the chapter, we explore different dimensions of women's entrepreneurial activities, at start-up (section 3), for accessing resources and for managing their businesses (section 4). For each dimension, we investigate female entrepreneurs' realities and the underlying gender dynamics, and describe the strategies used by female entrepreneurs to manage them. [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 ▲]

Entrepreneurial ‘process’ perspectives explain the events of an entrepreneurial journey in terms of mechanisms, such as ‘effectual logic’, ‘bricolage’, ‘dynamic creation’, ‘opportunity tension’ and ‘enactment’. Process theorists, however, have not as yet developed an analytical framework that explains an entrepreneurial event in relation to the entrepreneurial journey as the unit of analysis. Building on Sarasvathy’s (2003 and 2008) and Venkataraman et al’s (2012) conception of entrepreneurship as a science of the artificial (Simon, 1996), we explain how this research gap can be addressed by conceptualizing the entrepreneurial journey as an emergent hierarchical system of entrepreneurial artifact-creating processes. From this perspective, entrepreneurial events can be explained in relation to the endogenous dynamics of prior patterns of artifact emergence. We discuss some research implications of focusing on artifact emergence as the unit of analysis in process theory development. [less ▲]

In contrast to structurally-determinist and cognitive/agency oriented views of opportunity recognition, it is argued that opportunity formation is relationally and communally constituted - an insight that is not recognised in descriptive or linear process models of opportunity recognition. To arrive at this claim, use is made of social constructionist ideas. These ideas have been frequently applied in entrepreneurship studies but less attention has been given to the relational aspects of social constructionist thinking particularly with regard to opportunity formation processes. To aid this line of inquiry an analysis is undertaken of a sibling-autobiographical account of a high profile business venture, Coffee Republic. This account has been crafted by the sibling partnership with a particular audience in mind (the would-be entrepreneur) with guidelines and principles on how ‘anyone can do it’. However, it is not utilised here as a good specimen of business venturing to be probed for particular (hidden) meanings. Instead, the account is evaluated in order to illustrate how individualistic statements about opportunity discovery can be reconceptualised as relationally and communally constituted - an emphasis which is important for widening our theoretical understanding of the activities we label entrepreneurship.

New ventures can be an important driver of economic growth and technological progress. Yet, many new ventures fail and do not overcome the challenges of the early entrepreneurial phase. Extant research has acknowledged that the people who jointly start and manage a new venture have a key impact on its subsequent success and development. However, a discrepancy exists in how the interplay of their characteristics, cognition, and actions ultimately shape the way a new venture evolves. Therefore the primary purpose of this thesis is to contribute to this research stream by exploring the multifaceted role of entrepreneurial teams for new venture direction and growth. This is done with the aid of three research papers relying on a multiple case study and a specifically designed dataset from Luxembourg. The first paper illuminates how the shared pre-start-up transition moments of entrepreneurial team members influence the joint decision logic in the initial venture phase. Focusing on the composition of entrepreneurial teams, the second paper illustrates early activities that allow new ventures to leverage the diverse educational backgrounds of their team members to achieve financial growth. Lastly, the third paper explores aspects of leadership in new ventures and uncovers how agreement on an early shared vision affects subsequent changes in the entrepreneurial team, taking into account members’ relational ties. This thesis makes important contributions to research in entrepreneurship and strategic management, adding to a more fine-grained view on the micro-foundations and outcomes of entrepreneurial action. Also, it has practical implications for entrepreneurs, their mentors and investors, entrepreneurship education and policymakers. [less ▲]

The aim of this communication is to explore an emergent topic in the entrepreneurship literature, collaborative entrepreneurship, with the perspective of female entrepreneurs in Luxembourg. We share the first insights from an exploratory study on this relatively unexplored topic, in particular in the women's entrepreneurship field. The in-depth case study analysis of two female entrepreneurs who created and developed a business collaboration, complemented by qualitative interviews with female entrepreneurs working in collaboration, enable to propose first elements of understanding of this phenomenon and to establish the bases of a theoretical model.

This article introduces a Special Issue on the theme of Entrepreneurship and Institutional Change. Drawing upon the accumulated literature and three original contributions it aims to explore the conditions and the processes through which entrepreneurship may influence institutional change. The paper argues that entrepreneurs are not only influenced by the prevailing institution(s) but they can also influence (both intentionally and unintentionally) institutional change. This challenges prevailing views about the ability and effectiveness of the state to drive change. The article also outlines an agenda for future research into how entrepreneurship shapes emerging institutional arrangements. [less ▲]

A dialogic and drama-like narrative is presented. This has resulted from an unexpected circumstance in which a business idea is seen to emerge. This narrative provides a valuable resource for a ‘negotiated narrative’ style of entrepreneurship management learning and it is used to contribute to the theoretical understanding of entrepreneurship itself and to the production of a novel way of conceptualizing entrepreneurial processes generally. Emphasis is given to the emergent and relational processes through which learning occurs and through which entrepreneurial opportunities are realized. Entrepreneurship can thus be seen as a matter of entrepreneurial actors relationally ‘becoming otherwise’ through enabling customers or clients to ‘become otherwise’. [less ▲]
