The Influence of Gender on Environmental Entrepreneurship

Gizem’s PhD research explores the influence of gender and formal institutions (Gov/NonGov) on the green entrepreneurship in Turkey. Her study’s main aim is to contribute to the gender and environmental entrepreneurship literature by examining and exploring this nascent area to provide a robust theoretical framework and to make an empirical contribution to this phenomenon that will inform the future studies and policymakers.
