Issues of identity (including its formation and upkeep) have recently become an area of focus among entrepreneurship scholars. This is, at least in part, because entrepreneurial identity has been found to influence how entrepreneurs think and act as they prepare, and ultimately as they launch and run their organizations. Given the importance of entrepreneurial identity, this chapter seeks to: (1) review existing literature that has addressed entrepreneurial identity and entrepreneurial identity among women entrepreneurs; and (2) discuss how entrepreneurial identity may come to be, by comparing identity work dynamics among professionals with identity work dynamics among entrepreneurs. In so doing, it also highlights what may be unique and/or different for women entrepreneurs. Finally, it offers suggestions (and raises some of the intrinsic challenges) associated with future research on entrepreneurial identity, flagging those issues that may be of particular significance when studying the identities of women entrepreneurs.
