Chapter 5: Unveiling women entrepreneurship in technology ventures: gendered organization and gendered society interactions
Women technology entrepreneurs is a neglected topic in the entrepreneurship literature. Rather than following gender-blind frameworks used for entrepreneurship, this study proposes to use a feminist approach. The literature is overcrowded with analyses of individual-level factors while ignoring the role of macro factors in shaping entrepreneurship. Thus, this study develops a total of nine propositions around two key macro factors: organizational factors (such as the hierarchical structure of scientific workplaces) and societal factors (such as stereotypes). The chapter presents a case analysis using the propositions developed on an exemplar country chosen for the study: Turkey. Our overview of Turkey confirms the propositions developed in this chapter. The chapter ends with implications of the study and suggestions for future studies.
