Report: Women Entrepreneurship in the EU and Japan

This report seeks to identify cross-cultural, socio-political and structural aspects that cause the overall low percentage of women entrepreneurs and CEO’s in the EU and Japan. Investigating which issues they encounter can help explain the small number of women participating in the Centre's business activities. By learning more about the challenges women face when starting a business in Japan, others can be informed and be better prepared in embarking on their business adventure. Likewise, can the discovery of women-specific help tools, such as financing and networking organizations serve as examples on how gender equality can be achieved. Consequently, this report may form an incentive for the EU-Japan Centre to start closing up the gender gap in its clientele.
