Chapter 14: Women entrepreneurs and performance: evidence from Italy
This chapter investigates how personal, environmental and social context variables influence Italian female firms’ performance. Results show that some personal and environmental variables, traditionally influencing European and North American female firms’ performance, are statistically significant in the case of Italy. Moreover, differently from our hypotheses, the role of the family does not seem to affect the analysed firms’ performance.
