Abstract and Keywords

This article reviews recent research on the financing strategies of women-owned firms. It focuses narrowly in light of the fact that the number of articles on women-owned firms has increased dramatically in the past two decades. Rather than trying to tackle the full gamut of issues, it chooses instead to focus on the area of financing where recent studies indicate that barriers and differences between women- and men-owned firms persist. The present review of research reveals several important findings and trends such as women's financing strategies and sources are at least partially driven by their motivations and goals and by the types of firms they start to achieve those goals.

Keywords: financing strategies, women-owned firms, business motivations, organizational goals, business barriers
