Starting Up in Business Networks : Why Relationships Matter in Entrepreneurship, Hardback Book

Starting Up in Business Networks : Why Relationships Matter in Entrepreneurship Hardback

Edited by Andrea Perna


This book offers a novel perspective on starting-up new business ventures through examining the process by which they become part of the existing business environment.

The book highlights the importance of inter-organizational business relationships.

Asserting that new ventures need to interact and connect with customers and suppliers, alongside policy actors and universities, Starting up in Business Networks demonstrates how beginning a new venture demands initiating and developing business relationships.

Noting a lack of prior research into the process by which start-ups embed into an existing business network, this book presents examples from countries such as Sweden, Italy, the Netherlands and China to analyse the emergence and evolution of start-up business networks.
