The relation between gender and entrepreneurship is a well-researched and a very contemporary topic. Henry (2013), Shinnar and Giacomin (2012), Boyd (2005), Díaz-García, Jiménez-Moreno (2010), Lerner and Pines (2010), Gupta, Turban and Wasti (2009), Wilson, Pines & Schwartz (2008), Kickul and Marlino (2007), Verheul et al, (2006),Bruni, Gherardi and Poggio (2004), Mueller (2004), Hielman and Chen (2003), Muravyev (2007), Fischer, Reuber and Dyke (1985) are some of the researchers who have studied this area extensively.

Though the relation between gender and entrepreneurship is a well-cited topic, this special issue focuses on Cross Cultural Perspectives. 

There are several studies examining cross-cultural aspects of entrepreneurs (Gupta and Fernandez, 2009; Mueller and Thomas, 2001), gender and entrepreneurship (Thébaud, 2010), gender stereotypes and entrepreneurship (Gupta, Turban and Wasti, 2009).

However, limited researchers like that of Mueller and Dato-on (2010) are found studying the gender stereotypes and entrepreneurship in cross cultural perspectives.

Therefore, this special issue will make original contribution to this area.

This special edition, Gender and Entrepreneurship in Cross Cultural Perspectives, endeavours to provide an international platform to academicians, research scholars and practioners from across the world to contribute their scholarly research and to lead in the advancement of inter-disciplinary research of gender studies, entrepreneurship and cross-cultural management, for the benefit of academia, business and society at large, by publishing theoretical, empirical, experimental and applied research.

This aim will be met by getting scholarly research contributions from good researchers in the various areas of management.
