Gender Specifics in Entrepreneurs’ human and Social Capital
Female entrepreneurs should not be treated as a monolithic category; rather, they are a diverse and complex group, with varied backgrounds, circumstances, and worldviews. Previous research has shown that entrepreneurial potential in Slovenia is not fully utilized (Rebernik et al., 2009). Thus, this paper investigates differences in human and social capital between male and female entrepreneurs. The concept of entrepreneurial individuals with distinguishing characteristics is central to entrepreneurial theory. For each category of investigated human and social capital, this paper describes existing gender differences and exposes those, that are statistically significant. Since women remain an unexploited source of entrepreneurship, establishing effective mechanisms for the promotion of female entrepreneurship should become an important issue in Slovenian society. The paper concludes with policy and program suggestions for the support of female entrepreneurship.
