Abstract

The aim of this chapter is to explore the various funding sources for women’s entrepreneurship which promote the entrepreneurial activities undertaken in developing, emerging, and transition economies (DETEs). In this regard, extensive review of the extant and relevant literature is conducted with specification of time range, online database, and keywords. The findings suggest the various financing barriers experienced by female entrepreneurs in the entrepreneurial process in order to start, maintain, and grow their business. Furthermore, this chapter triggers new debate on the sources of the funding and discloses and differentiates the emerging and traditional sources of funding to fuel entrepreneurial activities in a new era. It is found that emerging sources of funding offer significant solutions in developing, emerging and transition economies. In addition, the chapter provides policy implications to academia, practitioners, financial institutions, and government agencies to promote women’s entrepreneurship by ensuring different forms of financial support so that women can escape the disadvantaged group label and gain the status of equal opportunities.

Keywords: Finance, Funding, Entrepreneurship, Women
