Professor George Saridakis inaugural lecture: The road less travelled - factors influencing female entrepreneurship

Female entrepreneurial activity has increased over the years, contributing significantly in shaping the economic and social environment in which agents and individuals operate, fostering economic growth and improving wellbeing. Despite this fact, women are still less likely to choose the road of entrepreneurship and become involved in business start-up activity as compared to men.

The subject of female entrepreneurship has been in the academic arena and in policy debates for some time now and we have learnt much about it, but there is still much more to learn. In his inaugural lecture, Professor George Saridakis, from the Small Business Research Centre at Kingston University, outlines how females respond to economic incentives, policy innovations and socio-demographic changes, and how they differ from their male counterparts.

He argues that approaches which rely on small sample and self-reported data fail to capture and explain significant socio-economic dynamics in female entrepreneurial decision making, and allow differences in the impact factors entering the decision process at short and long time-horizons.

 

We look forward to welcoming Professor David Storey from the University of Sussex to Kingston as he introduces Professor Saridakis and his inaugural lecture.
