The objective of this chapter is to draw attention to the relationship between STEM education and women’s entrepreneurship in technology enterprises. By using Australia as a case study, this exploratory analysis of secondary data shows how Australia has gains in the level of women’s involvement in STEM education, while it still has to overcome a chasm for woman then proceeding from being a STEM alumnus into actually becoming an entrepreneur in technology start-ups. The authors specifically discuss an institutional intervention in STEM education, the Science in Australia Gender Equity (SAGE) initiative. The chapter concludes with a discussion and suggestions for further studies.
