Open Workshop by Prof. Kim Klyver: Network agency unlocks the world of resources
Speaker: Prof. Kim Klyver, University of Southern Denmark (Denmark) and University of Adelaide (Australia).
In this study we seek to understand how entrepreneurs’ network agency enables them to first generate resources-rich network ties (network tie formation problem) and second how network agency enables to them mobilize those available resources (network action problem). We look into two components of network agency, namely entrepreneurs’ social skills and their network intensity.
