Chapter 25 takes the stance that in starting new ventures, entrepreneurs are prone to failure due to their limited knowledge, skills, and resources. Here, the role of incubators comes into play as they provide abundant support for the entrepreneur. However, the question arises as to whether incubators influence the creation of entrepreneurial networks, which is important for resource seeking activities. In response to the query, the authors attempt to fill the knowledge gap by collecting data from entrepreneurs located on and off incubators. Empirically, they found that incubators help entrepreneurs to develop network specially in the early stage. The finding also shows that entrepreneurs located on and off incubators develop a different pattern of network during the development of new ventures. The study also confirmed that the change of the network is necessary for resource seeking activities.

Chapter 7 explores incubators’ challenges in developing sustainable entrepreneurial ecosystems. A survey of 96 incubators from 3 European nations show how many of them perceive to be profiled as environmentally sustainable, however, are desirous of more concrete actions to fulfil such ambitions. The Incubators’ sustainability engagement was assessed using an index, which shows that German incubators had relatively more cases of sustainability forerunners but also have many laggards; while most of the Swedish respondents were either strivers or fledglings without any forerunners; and a majority of Finish respondents were laggards with only one forerunner. Authors recommend that incubators integrate competence on sustainability in daily operations and collaborate with each other to find ways to enhance their sustainability engagement.
