Abstract

Entrepreneurship is seen as a non-traditional career option for women and most of the available  research on this career focus on the male entrepreneur. A life-cycle model of career development is used as basis to systematize the review of the few studies of female entrepreneurs. Research on factors influencing the developmental history of women entrepreneurs, namely their education and training, personality traits, childhood family environment, work history, adult developmental history and adult family history, are grouped together for discussion. Factors affecting the women entrepreneurs' current situation are discussed separately. Research on female entrepreneurs in two different cultures are contrasted and areas for research on women entrepreneurs in South Africa are discussed.

Aangesien entrepreneurskap as 'n nie-tradisionele loopbaankeuse vir vroue beskou word, fokus meeste van die bestaande navorsing oor entrepreneurskap op die manlike entrepreneur. Hierdie oorsig van navorsing oor die vroue-entrepreneur benut 'n lewensiklus-model ten einde die bestaande navorsing te sistematiseer. Gevolglik word navorsing oor faktore wat die ontwikkeling van entrepreneurskap by die vrou bei'nvloed, gegroepeer en word inligting oor hut opvoedkundige geskiedenis, persoonlikheidstrekke, gesinsgeskiedenis, werkservaring en volwasse-ontwikkeling ingesluit. Faktore wat die vroue-entrepreneur se huidige funksionering beinvloed, word afsonderlik bespreek. Navorsing oor vroue-entrepreneurs in twee verskillende kulture word gekontrasteer en voorstelle vir navorsing oor vroue-entrepreneurs in Suid-Afrika word aangebied.
