Entrepreneurship in peripheries: Where and how can peripheral regions benefit from social ties and social embeddedness of nascent entrepreneurs?

The aim of this project is to scrutinize whether, and in such case how, entrepreneurial activities can be translated to regional development outside the largest urban regions. While there is a growing evidence of the role of social ties for formation and development of new firms, especially in peripheral regions, the missing piece of the puzzle is how diverse is their importance from a regional and individual perspective. We will particularly focus on differences between local and non-local entrepreneurs in terms of igniting regional diversification and employment.
