The role of regional social capital changes over the course of the entrepreneurial process
November 21, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm CET
Dr Johannes Kleinhempel
Postdoc in Entrepreneurship
Copenhagen Business School
We assess how social capital relates to individuals’ initial interest in becoming an entrepreneur, formally setting up a venture, and subsequent survival of the venture. Conceptualizing and measuring entrepreneurship as a sequential process inferred from cross-sectional data for 22,878 individuals living in 110 regions across 22 European countries, we find that regional social capital is relevant for formally setting up a venture, but it is not associated with initial interest, nor with venture survival after establishment. By assuming variability and not uniformity in how social capital relates to entrepreneurship, we gain a better understanding of the contextual determinants of the venture creation process.
