Abstract

In this article we have examined gender-specific characterizations by the students, regarding common traits and differences between male and female entrepreneurs, strengthened also in the light of a previous contact with entrepreneurial activity. Our two main scales from interviews to students and validated through a Paired Sample T-Test, demonstrate how young students from both genders converge typically in the traditional gender gap when thinking of a male or a female entrepreneur. Our three hypotheses are confirmed in the research demonstrate also that exposure to entrepreneurial network act as a reinforcement stimuli make it possible to read the traits in a more similar way in both genders. Fixed effects of gaps in students, as well as traditional hierarchies of image of an entrepreneur (be male a/o female) are therefore usefully clustered in our sample around a network perspective, brings about a lessened influential hegemony of masculinity in entrepreneurship.
