Topics covered by current research are divided, for discussion, into five broad categories, namely the characteristics and behaviours of women business owners; the characteristics of their ventures; financial strategies adopted and business decision-making; the relationships between those seeking finance and potential suppliers; and the impact of gender on women's ability to raise finance. In relation to future research, the authors highlight, among other things, the need for: research designs that capture the heterogeneity of women business owners and their ventures; in addition to comparative studies, investigations that give ‘voice’ to women's experiences (of seeking and supplying finance) in their own right; sound theoretical and conceptual foundations and contributions to theory building; more longitudinal studies; holism, inclusivity and heterogeneity in research into the financing of women-owned/led businesses.
