Family Matters: Gender, Networks, and Entrepreneurial Outcomes.
Renzulli, Linda A.; Aldrich, Howard; Moody, James
Social Forces, v79 n2 p523-46 Dec 2000
Examines the association between men's and women's social capital and their likelihood of starting a business. Suggests that heterogeneous social networks provide greater access to multiple sources of information. Women had a greater proportion of kin and greater homogeneity in their networks, but it was network characteristics rather than gender that disadvantaged some female entrepreneurs. (Contains 59 references.) (Author/SV)
