Key words: Entrepreneurship, Embeddedness, Disembeddedness, Network, Resources.
Purpose: The purpose of this research is to explore, analyze and better understand how the novice and disembedded entrepreneur embed in a new social context. I also want to understand which kind of embeddedness that leads to a higher level of entrepreneurial success.
Methodology: This research is a qualitative case study with an abductive approach.
The empirical data has been collected through semi-structured interviews with five novice and priory disembedded entrepreneurs.
Theoretical perspective: This study addresses the dilemma of disembedded novice entrepreneurs and the process of how they embed and reach entrepreneurial success.
Empirical foundation: The empirical material focuses on understanding the novice entrepreneur’s embeddedness process.
Conclusions: Novice entrepreneurs overcome disembeddedness with the assistance of weak, strong and new ties as well as third party referrals. I found that when entrepreneurs embed by using new and professional ties, a higher level of entrepreneurial success can be reached. (Less)
