Title: Support paths: How support to entrepreneurs fosters prevalent ties (abstract below)
16:50 – 17:00Q&A and discussion

Presentation abstract: Entrepreneurship is increasingly considered as a social phenomenon, where proximal relationships contribute to the emergence of entrepreneurial projects. Complementing extant literature around entrepreneurs’ direct support relationships, we examine how indirect relationships, connecting entrepreneurs’ supporters to third parties, enables support for entrepreneurs. We refer to these combinations of relationships linking entrepreneurs to third parties through supporters as “support paths”. Through Qualitative Structural Analysis, we analyze twenty-two support paths. We suggest that supporting involves the development of relationships that allow actors to frame and embrace ongoing challenges in the wider network. Specifically, we find evidence that supporters respond to entrepreneurs’ signals of need for support as a means to enhance the peculiarity of the support path within and against the larger context of the surrounding network, experienced as pressures, opportunities, and threats. These mechanisms both enable and constrain entrepreneurs’ projects.
