The New Career starts after entrepreneurial Life

Abstract : This chapter seeks to contribute to the understanding of the behavior of senior women entrepreneurs by answering the following question: “Why do women (senior) entrepreneurs decide to become engaged in formal entrepreneurial networks?” By examining the established literature on the link between networks and performance, especially for senior women entrepreneurs, and the literature on legitimacy with a neo-institutional perspective, and based on a mixed study approach, we establish an explanatory model of how the quest for legitimacy could explain the engagement of senior women entrepreneurs in professional networks.
