Women’s entrepreneurship has been identified as an increasingly important contributor for economic growth and welfare, in particular for developing nations. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) alone counts 61 million women entrepreneurs in its 10 member countries, more than in Europe and the USA combined (Xavier et al., 2016). The Diana Project was established in 1999 by Professors Brush, Carter, Gatewood, Greene, and Hart – in partnership with ESBRI in Stockholm. The Diana Project has led the research agenda in women’s entrepreneurship across continents, cultures, and contexts. During these years, Diana conferences have annually brought together more than 100 scholars from 16 different countries worldwide, providing an arena to share a global research agenda dedicated to answering questions about women entrepreneurs. It is for the first time that the Diana Conference is hosted in Asia and we hope to welcome researchers from the region amongst all others. The 2018 Diana International Conference will take place from 31 July – 2 August 2018 in Bangkok, the “big mango”, at Bangkok University School of Entrepreneurship and Management (BUSEM), Thailand. Papers accepted for the 2018 conference build on the conference theme: Women’s Entrepreneurship and Culture. Call for abstracts will be open from 15 October to 15 December 2017. For questions, please send an email to Asst. Prof. Dr. Ulrike Guelich at firstname.lastname@example.org.
