Abstract

This study assesses the influence of education on development of new products by female entrepreneurs in Indonesia to provide a basis for policy-makers to develop educational policies. Data were collected from Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM), with 5,620 male and female respondents, and interviews with female entrepreneurs, which resulted in a mixed-methods approach. Results suggest that education relates with development of new products by female entrepreneurs. This study provides a foundation for future research into other categories of Indonesian entrepreneurs. Future research should examine the need for education for female entrepreneurs, which solves economic and social problems in Indonesia.
