The role of entrepreneurial networks in the process of start-ups creation

2018 10 () Zeszyty Programu TOP 15

Abstract

In today’s world entrepreneurship is increasingly common. Every individual has their own network
of family, friends and extended connections, and this study demonstrates, how the networks
can influence the development of the start-ups to increase their competitiveness and decrease
uncertainty. This article aims to highlight the benefits of the entrepreneurial network from the
perspective of the entrepreneur. In order to obtain empirical data, interviews were conducted with
start-up entrepreneurs from both Poland and Hong Kong.
One unexpected obstacle worth emphasizing which was discovered while conducting interviews
for the survey is the reluctance of entrepreneurs to share their experiences about their social
connections. However, it cannot be denied that entrepreneurial networks provide a set of significant
benefits, which impact the activities of start-ups, to the extent that their impact should be investigated
further.
This study will contribute to the field of entrepreneurship studies by providing insight into the usage
of networks by start-up entrepreneurs in Poland and Hong Kong.
