This paper aims to explore the ubiquitous role of the smartphone in expanding entrepreneurial opportunity among women in emerging Asia. This study attempted to explore the hidden issues behind increased innovative entrepreneurial tendency.
This study used a mixed research methodology. First, prior research based on different aspects of entrepreneurial tendency was reviewed in a systematic way. Second, a person-administered survey was conducted based on 265 women who are involved in entrepreneurial activities in different regions in Asia. Structural equation modeling (Amos) is used to analyze the person-administered survey.
Results show a significant relationship among the independent and dependent variables of the study which indicates a significant entrepreneurship opportunity for women in emerging Asia.
This study was conducted with a limited number of entrepreneurs from a few Asian countries which may affect the generalizability of the result.
This study fulfills the gap in the current literature by analyzing innovativeness in entrepreneurship with the usage of smartphones and increased tendency among women to conduct business.
