  • This event has passed.

The relative under-representation of women as entrepreneurs generally, and within the STEMM context specifically, has attracted significant academic and policy interest. The recent Rose Review (2019) suggests the gender gap results in a significant loss to the national economy in terms of financial revenue, innovation and production improvements. Greater numbers of women entering STEMM disciplines and increased start-up provision via Business Incubation environments, such as Incubation Centres and Accelerator programmes, offered hope that the gender gap may improve.

This event draws together the latest research findings in relation to STEMM women’s entrepreneurial activity and their experiences within business incubation environments. These findings are contextualised by an overview of the gender barriers faced by women entrepreneurs in this space. This event will be of interest to those undertaking academic research in the areas of gender and entrepreneurship and/or innovation, commercialisation and spinouts, or business support ecosystems. It may also be of interest to STEMM ECRs considering their future career options and contemplating commercialisation and/or entrepreneurship.

This is a free event but places are limited. To secure you place please email: Lynn@isbe.org.uk
