Abstract: Empirical evidence demonstrates that women entrepreneurs' business performance results go far beyond purely economic aspects. This study analyses the extent to which women entrepreneurs' business goals differ with respect to their business performance in economic and non-economic terms. We analyse a sample of Spanish women entrepreneurs, measuring their performance perception and business goals. Our results show that women do not display significant differences regarding their individual non-economic goals related to non-economic performance results. However, our results partially support the claim regarding the relationship between social non-economic goals and economic goals in relation to non-economic and economic oriented performance respectively. Implications for further research are discussed.
