Does Institutional Environment Promote Women's IT Entrepreneurial Intention in Saudi Arabia ?Technological and Institutional Perspectives
From the foregoing studies, they unanimously agreed that women in technological entrepreneurship and innovation are strongly underrepresented. Based on previous literature of female entrepreneurship and Information Systems (IS), the study for the first time aims to propose an integrated model to explain women’s IT entrepreneurial intention as a new driver of IT entrepreneurial behavior. In particular, we aim to investigate the influence of socio-cultural factors as well as technological factors on intention and decision-making processes that lead women to become tech-entrepreneurs in Saudi Arabia. Investigating such factors that affect women’s entrepreneurial intention to become so is beneficial for motivating a new generation of women entrepreneurs in the IT context as well as providing a further understanding to IS researchers and practitioners
