Empresas spin-off y género: diferencias entre hombres y mujeres en la creación de empresas de base tecnológica. El caso de Cataluña

Brunet, Ignasi; Rodríguez, Juan
Abstract:
This article addresses to the effects of sexual division of labour on the creation of self employment in the specific context of knowledge transfer companies, particularly in university spin-off. The results described here are based on a study funded by the Catalan Women’s Institute, which seeks to provide continuity to other research that affect the relationship between entrepreneurship and gender. The aim of this paper is to study the differences between men and women entrepreneurs and see what factors influence their trajectories. The focus of the analysis is placed on the differences that the sexual division of labour results in an activity as self-employment, focusing on two specific areas of this: the initial moment of creation of a company and in the context of high-tech companies where innovation and research, rather than added value, are the reason for such business initiatives.
