Gender aspects of entrepreneurial opportunities and abilities

Keywords: entrepreneurship, people's opinions, men, women, creating their own businesses.

Abstract

To date, the involvement of the population in the creation of a business has become an urgent problem. Therefore, the purpose of our study was to determine the opinions of adults that have developed in various states about the opportunities and abilities they have to open their own enterprises. The results of a survey of the adult population on this problem were used as empirical data. The survey conducted in 2018 covered 59 states located in different parts of the world. Our study was aimed at assessing the existing gender differences. The computational experiment allowed the development of six mathematical models. The study showed that in most countries men are more optimistic about their opportunities and abilities to participate in entrepreneurial activities.
