The influence of the social network on female entrepreneurial intention: Does cultural intelligence matter?
An increasing number of women are becoming entrepreneurs. However, the availability of data on female entrepreneurship is limited. The present study aimed to analyze the effect of women’s social network size on their entrepreneurial intention. Furthermore, the study analyzed whether women’s level of cultural intelligence affected this relationship. The research model was assessed using survey data obtained from 201 women. The findings suggested that a larger social network decreased the intention to become an entrepreneur among women. Furthermore, women’s level of cultural intelligence did not increase nor diminish the effect of social network size on entrepreneurial intention.
