Purpose: Participation of women in different types of entrepreneurship is on an all-time high with females actively embarking on these fields to pursue a career. Technology-based businesses have always been the domain of men essentially because of the field’s maledominated character. Despite of this fact, many women have ventured into this industry against all odds and made inroads in this field. However, the population of women entrepreneurs in technology sector is still marginal primarily because the climate for female technopreneurship in the country is not yet positive. The purpose of this paper is to investigate and examine into the various motivating and inhibiting factors that affect existing or potential women entrepreneurs in the technology field. The study will provide deeper insights to women considering starting a technopreneurial venture and has policy implications. Methodology: For the purpose of this study, insights were derived through an extensive review of theoretical and empirical papers on women entrepreneurship and women technopreneurship. Objectives: ? To provide an account of women technopreneurship ? To identify and explain the various motivating and inhibiting factors that affect women technopreneurs

Keywords: Women Entrepreneurship, Technopreneurship, Inhibiting Factors, Motivating Factors
