Entrepreneurship has been the subject of numerous studies, given its importance in the economic development of nations, especially in its contribution to job creation. Many authors argue that there are three kinds of elements that affect behavior. The first is related to the introduction of a new goods, the second with business motivation and the latter describes factors that inhibit entrepreneurial activity. Although entrepreneurship is recognized as an engine for the development and economic growth of a country, nowadays it has also been research in the gender difference arena, although the participation of women, is increasing still does not equal to the male participation. It is also important to emphasize that the characteristics of the individuals are formed throughout their life, and they are being strengthened, atrophied, or complemented, as the individual goes socializing. This process can be greatly influenced by education, since quality education allows people to have multiple opportunities to expand their capacities, acquire the cultural heritage and develop the skills and skills needed to perform adequately in today's world.

It is clear that gender and years of education have an impact on entrepreneurship, but are women necessarily being asked for more education in order to provide them with funding for their projects? And if so, is this greater education affecting the success of the enterprise ? In the particular case of this research, a database is used that contains different participants of entrepreneurship projects in recent years, provided by the Corporation for the Promotion of Production (CORFO) of the Chilean government. This base involves both those who have gained funding and those who have participated but have not earned them and is based on a survey conducted through that institution by the authors. The econometric study of the resulting data has made it possible to determine if women are required to obtain higher levels of education and if the level of education later allows them to achieve higher levels of success as female entrepreneurs.
