Résumé
South Africa is currently grappling with persistent economic challenges and escalating unemployment, which have been further exacerbated by the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. Entrepreneurship is widely recognised as the engine of economic and employment creation. The importance of women’s contribution to economic development is no longer a moot point. It is therefore concerning to observe the low, and indeed declining, participation of women in entrepreneurial activities. Studies have shown that entrepreneurship is a planned behaviour, therefore understanding the entrepreneurial intentions of women is crucial in promoting their engagement in entrepreneurship. Although there exists a handful of studies on entrepreneurial intention in South Africa, these focus mainly on students and the youth in provinces such as Gauteng, Western Cape and Limpopo, while the North West province has largely been by-passed. The purpose of this study is therefore to bridge this gap by assessing the entrepreneurial intentions of women in the North West province by means of an exploratory study using the Theory of Planned Behaviour
