Background/Objectives: The aim of this study is to shed light on the constraints undermining women’s participation in entrepreneurship activities and how mobile technology can help overcome these barriers. Methods/Statistical Analysis: To measure the women’s participation in the economy, we analyzed statistics from Moroccan official sources and international ones. Also, we based our work on a literature review to address the influence of mobile technology on women’s entrepreneurship. Findings: Our findings suggest that women entrepreneurs in MENA zone are facing family constraints, inferior level of education compared to men, low financial inclusion and limited mobility allowance. In many developing countries, mobile technology is showing its ability and potential to overtake women’s entrepreneurship constraints. Improvements/Applications: To fully understand the connection between women’s entrepreneurship potential and mobile technology it’s important to conduct longitudinal studies.
