    Abstract

    The enterprise perspective on ICT-based microenterprise for women approaches this topic from a business worldview: one that sees the microenterprise as a business venture that is intended to develop sales, income, growth, etc. Part A of this paper looks at basic indicators used to classify ICT-based enterprises, and this continues in Section B with some more specialised ways to classify enterprise. Business strategies are considered in Section C, particularly those related to cost and scale economics. Section D covers the impacts of ICT-based enterprises from a wide range of perspectives; a range that is increased in the next section through consideration of the context within which these enterprises operate. Section F highlights those factors that impact various stages in an ICT-based enterprise's lifecycle – 'birth', growth, and 'death'. Finally, Section G presents some other research tools that may be of use.
