New venture capitalisation demands the formation of the necessary financial resources to launch. Social capital - the potential resources to which individuals have access due to their position within specific social networks of relationships - also plays a significant role in new venture capitalisation in three main ways. Firstly, social capital provides access, and thus acts a means of securing other forms of capital. Secondly, social capital also lubricates relations between entrepreneur and others within the socio-economic environment, including financiers. Thirdly, social capital acts as a mechanism for fitting the entrepreneur and their new venture to the wider socio-economic environment.
