Samenvatting

Entrepreneurship is the driving force for the growth of economies. Female entrepreneurship is, however, still lagging behind in development when compared to male entrepreneurship. This paper describes possible differences between male and female entrepreneurship and the reasons behind these differences, and more particular, why and how education can play a role in stimulating female students to become entrepreneurs. The most common research question is related to differences between male and female entrepreneurs in attitudes, characteristics and competences in respect to entrepreneurship. Few such differences were
found. The educational setting is one of the core areas where students can devote their time in developing competences. Therefore, it might be of interest to study the educational context that contributes to female entrepreneurship. This paper presents an overview of the disincentives and incentives for female entrepreneurship. Furthermore it discusses the role of traits and competences in comparing male and female entrepreneurship. Concluded is with how education can contribute to fostering female entrepreneurship.
