Research project: Women entrepreneurship in Central and eastern Europe: impact of informal context

Abstract

Even as research on entrepreneurship in transition economies is increasing, research focused on female entrepreneurship is less developed. These economies have not been a focal point in the current literature related to this topic and my research aims to overcome this deficit within the literature.

Taking into consideration that there have only been few studies that have paid attention to female entrepreneurship centered in transition countries, we trust this book will be welcomed by researchers all over the world and by those who are interested to know more about female entrepreneurship in transition countries.
