Abstract

The research note reports findings of a study into the personal contact networks of Scottish entrepreneurs, and compares these to results already published for other countries (Canada, Greece, Japan, Italy, Northern Ireland, Sweden and the United States). The findings show that generic behaviour across borders cannot be taken as a given, although similarities exist in the under-representation of women as network members, the average age of network contacts, the duration of relationships, and the average monthly meetings. Entrepreneurs from the North East of Scotland exhibit a tendency towards small, tightly-integrated networks.
