This study critically analyses the micro, meso and macro level factors that influence the female academics to engage in academic entrepreneurship (AE). The extant literature, which seeks to understand the female academics engagement in AE mostly revolves around a gender comparative lens, where women entrepreneurs are understood only in comparison with men. This study examines the association between informal academic entrepreneurship (IAE) and the level of asymmetry between the micro, meso and macro level factors (5M framework). In this study, the author conducted 3 interviews with female academics in Bangladesh.
