Abstract

Main Message
Entrepreneurial finance scholars (and policy-makers) need to adopt an intersectional approach to their analysis (and policy-making) and pay more attention to the interplay between the owner-manager characteristics of ethnicity/race, gender, and social class.

Shorter Title of the manuscript
Exploring intersectionality issues in entrepreneurial finance

Key points
Since most literature on entrepreneurial finance treats ethnicity/race, gender, and class separately, an intersectional approach to analysis is complex, whether social (race, gender, social class) or situational characteristics (entrepreneur versus migrant/social or health care worker).
Women, ethnic minorities, and working-class people are disadvantaged when seeking finance.
We integrate the literature and proposes intersectionality as a framework for policy-makers, since the interplay between these characteristics can be addressed to develop innovative methods of finance.
