Networking plays an important and well-studied role in entrepreneurial start-up processes, but its role in subsequent venture growth is less well understood. This paper reports on an in-depth longitudinal study of entrepreneurial networking practices through venture growth. We discover that the entrepreneur's growth-focused networking practices involved specific patterns of activity, i.e. spans. We theorise these practices employing Bourdieu's habitus. Our contribution is to identify and analyze specific networking practices that enact the entrepreneurial growth process.
