How can mentorship boost aspiring women entrepreneurs?

Project Description

Most entrepreneurs are men. Using a large-scale field experiment, our project focuses on addressing the root causes of gender inequality in early-stage entrepreneurship. We experimentally test whether matching aspiring to established entrepreneurs can help fuel the entrepreneurial pipeline, and whether it can help decrease the gender gap in entrepreneurship. We consider this gap to be one of today's global challenges as it relates to diversity, equity and inclusion.
