Abstract:Entrepreneurial Passion is seen as a driver for entrepreneurial action and can be connected to the success of a venture. Currently, there is not much research on the antecedent of Entrepreneurial passion, like Gender. Gender is not only an antecedent of passion but also related to the concept of self-identity. Social role identities are different for women and men and entrepreneurship is often seen as a masculine task. This leads to women having a negative perception of their legitimacy, resulting in the experience of barriers to opportunity recognition and financing. The aim of this research is to investigate the influence of gender on entrepreneurial passion for its three domains. The findings show that there is no significant influence of gender on passion. For all three domains of passion, female and male entrepreneurs show no difference in their experience of passion. This shows that although women may face barriers, which are not experienced by men, these barriers do not impact their experience of entrepreneurial passion.
