'Dotcom' Women Entrepreneurs in the UK
Drawing on two areas of academic interest, i.e. female entrepreneurship and the Internet sector, this paper provides an overview of female entrepreneurship in the web-based business sector in the UK. Based on a field study of 20 web-based small Internet-based companies owned by women, the paper explores why women start up DotCom businesses and presents a typology of DotCom women entrepreneurs. Although the sample size of the project is limited, yet the findings provide interesting and indicative insights into patterns of female entrepreneurship in this growth sector.
