Gender-related Differences in the Founding Intention
Whereas in the recent past entrepreneurship education is flourishing (Hisrich, 2006), the global entrepreneurship monitor reports that youth entrepreneurship has not enjoyed similar growth.. For example, in 2006 the percentage of start-ups founded by young people sunk in comparison to 2005.

Potential entrepreneurs and the pre-start-up phase seem to be neglected or, at least, they have not attracted the corresponding attention yet.
