Janice Byrne is an Assistant Professor in Entrepreneurship at the Ivey Business School. Her research primarily addresses gender in entrepreneurship and family business. She is also interested in management education and social entrepreneurship.

Janice has a passion for teaching and learning, and a strong social conscience. She strives to make a (small) difference in this world. In her previous institution, she was director of an entrepreneurship program for women who had experienced violence or extreme personal hardship.  

While she lived for more than a decade in France with her husband - an entrepreneur - and their two young boys, she is Irish to the core. She frequently returns to visit family and friends in Dublin
