Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to explore what kinds of contacts and networks women see as supportive in their role as business leaders and for their willingness of business growth. Our approach is to investigate the context of women entrepreneurs’ and the various kinds of supporting social networks they are part of. Questionnaires were sent to women entrepreneurs in Mid-Sweden and Mid-Norway about supportive assets and willingness for growth. The result shows 1) that personal networks are seen as a more supportive asset than business networks, 2) that personal contacts with other entrepreneurs are regarded valuable and 3) that women entrepreneurs willing for new networking already have a more heterogenic network than those who don’t express this willingness. The contribution from this study is to provide more detailed insight into the kind of networking giving access to resources important for women leading businesses to grow.
