The interplay of networks and firm performance within high-tech clusters
MetadataShow full item record
This research is concerned with the role and position of technology partnering networks in a re- gional inter-firm network in entrepreneurial firm performance. We develop hypotheses and test how the structure of technology partnering networks influences the performance of cluster firms. In addition, we investigate how reputation and information sourcing influence the development of technology partnering networks. The article addresses both how a certain type of network influences firm performance and how this type of network can be developed through the devel- opment of other types of networking activities.
