Dear all,


I am Rushi Pandya from Ahmedabad University, India. Currently, I am working
on understanding the social networks in the business incubation center
among different individuals i.e. managers, mentors, entrepreneurs and its
impact on the incubated venture's growth.

Considering India as the third largest entrepreneurial ecosystem globally,
the role of incubators is increasing exponentially. Networking is one of
the most important aspects of entrepreneurship. This research is aimed at
exploring networking behavior of the incubated entrepreneurs inside and
outside the incubation center. One of the objectives also includes an
understanding of how entrepreneurs are utilizing and developing a social
capital in the ecosystem during the incubation period.

With another colleague, we are doing this research with Venture Studio
<>, which is Ahmedabad University-based business
incubation center with more than 30 incubated ventures with 50+
founders/co-founders.The project is at a designing stage.

We are looking for mentor/collaborators to take this project further to
bring out quality results.

We also invite suggestions and inputs regarding the software and methods.

Please revert if you are interested. I would be happy to share more
