Title: How social capital and firm knowledge influence the acquisition of resources in technology based new ventures
Authors: Zane, Lee J.
Keywords: Management;Infrastructure (Economics);Resource allocation
Issue Date: 11-Jul-2011
Abstract: This research examines the effect of two components of technology based new ventures‘ initial resource endowment, knowledge and social capital, on the acquisition of additional resources needed by these firms in order for their products and services to reach commercialization. This research disaggregates the social network of the founder(s) into four sub networks, academic, industry, finance and personal (family and community) in an attempt to identify the unique benefit of individual sub networks. The Resource Based View and social network theory are used to explain the model. The sample consists of technology based new ventures.
