This chapter explores the effect of home location as well as the involvement of spouses and other family members on business growth while comparing women- and men-owned ventures. Like the labour market, entrepreneurship is gendered as well. The rate of women entrepreneurs is still extremely low compared to man entrepreneurs. A gender-based analysis reveals substantial gaps between the rates of men and women entrepreneurs. Family is an important dimension of the entrepreneurial landscape around the world, and the footprints of the family into the venture are quite diverse. Family factors entail additional aspects to the complexity of gendered entrepreneurship. Locating the business at home saves bureaucratic and licensing efforts, reduces the tensions related to the collisions between business and familial activities, eases the financial burden and gives the entrepreneur a sense of higher security while developing a new business.
