Patenting activity of women-owned businesses in Canada

Articles and reports: 36-28-0001202300200003

Description: This article examines the patenting activity of women-owned businesses and compares it to that of men- and equally-owned businesses, and businesses where gender of ownership cannot be determined. It adds to the literature on the gender gap in patenting, as most of it has focused on women as researchers or inventors, and not as business owners.
