The majority of entrepreneurial research has involved men and male characteristics with research into women entrepreneurs just beginning. With the increased participation of women as business owners it is useful to explore their characteristics and contributing factors to being an entrepreneur. Research has indicated that there are two groups of women based on age with different characteristics affecting their entrepreneurship. The focus of this research was to quantify these differences in Australian women entrepreneurs. Age was found to impact on the characteristics of field of study, type of industry, source of capital, use of mentor and risk-taking propensity.
