Abstract

This paper explores academic entrepreneurial teams to enrich our knowledge of the impact of capabilities and social networks of entrepreneurial teams have on the engagement of external supporters in seed investments. Resource-based view theory was employed to evaluate the capabilities of entrepreneurial teams and the conceptual model of Hoang and Antoncic (2003) to scrutinize the characteristics of social networks. The results from an examination of the sample of 181 Spanish university spin-offs demonstrate that by exploiting social networks an entrepreneurial team can shape its capabilities, which in turn improve its ability to access external seed investments
