This paper describes the findings of a unique nationwide research on female entrepreneurial activity in Cyprus, which was carried out for the Women's Cooperative Bank of Cyprus Ltd with funding from the Ministry of Justice and Public Order. On the one hand, it is an attempt towards gaining greater understanding of who the women who develop enterprising activity are (in other words determine what their demographic characteristics are), what their company characteristics are, (e.g. sector of activity, size etc.) as well as what their needs and concerns (e.g. the impact of multiplicity of roles, upgrading of skills or knowledge etc.) are. On the other hand, it is equally important to see how strong women business owners' presence is in the local economy.
