Abstract: The low rate of entrepreneurship among Singapore women may be attributable to gender-related discrimination. This study attempts to collect empirical evidence on whether an important source of resource providers, bank loan officers, hold a genderbiased perception of women. In a survey, fifty two bank loan officers from a major local bank evaluated either men, women or successful entrepreneurs on scales assessing eight personality dimensions attributed to successful entrepreneurs in the literature. It was hypothesized that sex stereotypes influenced perceptions that women, compared to men, did not possess the characteristics necessary for successful entrepreneurship.
