Feedback assignment 2

What makes it more likely that an entrepreneur introduces a new product or service to the market?

case: Uganda

at least 2 hypotheses about SN

one hypothesis has to use “structural holes”

feedback assignment 23
Feedback assignment 2

Good ideas

  • H1: “The effect of the number of family members (strong ties) on innovation in the early stage of an enterprise is larger than the effect of the number of non-family members (weak ties).”
  • H2: “The effect of non-family ties (weak ties) on innovation in the later phase of an enterprise is stronger than the effect of family ties (strong ties).”
feedback assignment 24
Feedback assignment 2

Good ideas

  • Effect of density/structural holes dependent on uncertainty (need of trust in unsecure economic situation)
  • Replication of unexpected findings under different cultural circumstances
feedback assignment 25
Feedback assignment 2

What went wrong?

  • copy & paste parts of the assignment as an intro
  • “entrepreneurs who have a denser network have more homogeneous contacts”
  • “the density is not significant”
  • “there is a relationship between innovation and the structure of the network”
feedback assignment 26
Feedback assignment 2
  • Compare possible ties with actual number of ties!
  • look at descriptives, e.g. distribution of density (dichtomous tie values):

Why could this be a problem?

What to do?

feedback assignment 27
Feedback assignment 2
  • if you use efficiency, consider using network size as well
  • if you use arguments of structural holes theory, why do you use density?
  • abstract (if at all): highlight some results!
