Four Entrepreneurs in Cape Breton (1988)

Women's Education des femmes, Fall 1988 - Vol. 6, No. 4

On the Island of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, a number of women have successfully launched new ventures. An account of their experiences provides an interesting case study for two reasons. First, women have not been traditionally involved in business in this area because development efforts have focused on resource based industries such as coal and steel. Second, women who have started new businesses are responding to government initiatives to promote entrepreneurship as a way of weaning the island off its unstable industrial based economy. If women are to be in the forefront of this economic recovery, their stories need to be told.

This article tells the stories of four woman entrepreneurs in Cape Breton.
