Research on entrepreneurial networks continues to grow. However, knowledge about the dynamics involved in building these networks over time remains limited. This lack is even more noticeable concerning studies on the pre-creation period of the entrepreneurial process. Drawing on Bruyat’s theory of entrepreneurship (2001), the authors examine the progressive creation of an entrepreneurial network over a two-year period.

Edited by Alain Fayolle, Sarah L. Jack, Wadid Lamine and Didier Chabaud
Entrepreneurship is undoubtedly a social process and creating a firm requires both the mobilization of social networks and the use of social capital. This book addresses the gap that exists between the need to take these factors into consideration and the understanding of how network relationships are developed and transformed across the venturing process.
