      Dear Prof. Mai Thai and other colleagues,

      As you know, on 8th March, we recently collaborated on generating ideas for potential research topics. During that process, I proposed an idea to investigate the barriers that women face when starting up in social business. I am thrilled to share that this idea garnered a great deal of interest and enthusiasm from our group.

      Today, I would like to take the opportunity to extend an invitation to anyone who is passionate about this topic and wants to conduct this research together. I believe that this study has the potential to generate valuable insights into the challenges that women entrepreneurs face and could help inform strategies for supporting their success.

      If you are interested in joining, please let me know by replying to this discussion. I would love to discuss this idea further with you and explore ways in which we could collaborate on this research project.

      Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

      To get started, I would like to propose some specific ideas related to the topic:

      1. Analyze the challenges faced by women entrepreneurs when starting up in social businesses, and compare them to the challenges faced by men in similar industries.

      2. Investigate the effectiveness of current policies and support systems in addressing the barriers faced by women entrepreneurs in social businesses.

      3. Conduct a comparative analysis of women-owned and men-owned social businesses, exploring factors such as funding, access to networks, and support systems.

      4. Examine the impact of cultural and societal norms on the participation of women in social businesses, and explore strategies for promoting greater gender diversity in this field.

      5. Identify the key success factors for women entrepreneurs in social businesses, and develop a framework for supporting their success.

      6. Explore the role of mentoring and coaching in supporting women entrepreneurs in social businesses, and investigate the most effective forms of mentorship and coaching for this group.

      7. Investigate the impact of personal characteristics such as age, education, and experience on the success of women entrepreneurs in social businesses.

      Please feel free to comment and make your suggestions.
