The importance of entrepreneurship has been increasingly acknowledged as a source of growth, and national economic development. Recently, women entrepreneurship has been a topic of concern and interest for scholars and researchers. Also, it has been a considerable matter for public policies and government strategies. There are many entrepreneurship initiatives that have been made by the government of Saudi Arabia to enhance contributions of women to the workforce and economic sector, as their role has been non-existent for a long period of time. However, women involvement in these initiatives is nascent with a limited entrepreneurship rate. This study focuses on identifying social factors that have influenced women entrepreneurship. Saudi women to become entrepreneurs from within the context of technology in the literature of entrepreneurship have not existed. Therefore, the present study aims to fill that gap of knowledge and contribute substantially to understand technology- based entrepreneurship within the context of Saudi women.
