Abstract

Focusing on the importance of motivational factors on the entrepreneurship, we investigate for drivers of gender involvement in entrepreneurial activities in the United States, Italy and France. This paper assesses differences between male and female entrepreneurs, using GEM Adult Population Survey 2012 individual-level data (altogether 7,282 individuals). We employ logistic regression analysis and look for the factors concerned with following the entrepreneurial path in our region while distinguishing between men and women. We have recognised the most crucial factors from among individual characteristics as well as motivational perspectives of entrepreneurship that act as gender entrepreneurship drivers
