Females tend to participate in less than males. In this project, we investigate whether one reason of the gender gap in entrepreneurship is gender-biased perception toward entrepreneurship. Using comments from YouTube clips discussing entrepreneurial pitch, we examine if crowds perceive female entrepreneurs more negatively than male entrepreneurs.
Students are expected to help collect and clean textual data from various platforms.
During the project, students will learn how to summarize and analyze large-scale dataset. They will also learn how empirical social science is conducted.
