This book provides a detailed account of Chinese industrial
entrepreneurs, and describes and explains the phenomena of women
entrepreneurship in Hong Kong. It addresses two main issues: first,
the characteristics of Chinese entrepreneurship and women
entrepreneurs; second, the factors that constitute the making of
Chinese women entrepreneurs in Hong Kong.
From in-depth personal interviews, Priscilla Chu examines the
entrepreneur as a person, and as a member of family, organization
and society. Having thus established the characteristic features of
Chinese entrepreneurship in general, and female entrepreneurship in
particular, the author builds a model to summarize the making of
female entrepreneurs in Hong Kong, a model which is significantly
different from that for male and Western counterparts. The study
analyses the distinct Chinese entrepreneurship in relation to
familism, Chinese work ethics, family and organizational
conditions, and societal and cultural contexts.
