Abstract:

Sociologists, economists, and network scientists concur that the entrepreneur s network is critical to success but have consistently struggled with developing models that are measurable or quantifiable. Well-known research on this subject tends to focus on the entrepreneur s social network Greve and Salaff, 2003, Witt,1978 and utilizes the Name Generator approach McAllister and Fischer,1978 to develop the social network model. This method maps an ego-centered network and assembles an inventory of information about every social contact, such as the relationship between the person under analysis and the people within the social network Van Der Gaag Snijders, 2004.
