Female Entrepreneurship: Theoretical Approaches


  • Mirjana Radovic-Markovic

    () (Institute of Economic Sciences, Belgrade, Serbia)


Due to different approaches to female entrepreneurship, the author suggested that this field of research is considered to be very broad. Some of the theories outlined in this article can be linked to the study of this phenomenon, such as gender theories, managerial theories, public policy, etc. In line with this, the author proposed that all of these approaches should be as integrated as possible in order to provide a complete understanding of female entrepreneurship.
