Digital entrepreneurship – a social interaction perspective
Academy of Management Annual Meeting Proceedings

Prompted by the significant growth in digital entrepreneurship and a lack of research on, and understanding of, this emerging phenomenon, this study has two goals: (i) to conceptualize the construct of Digital Entrepreneurship (DE), and (ii) to advance a research agenda for its further study from a social interaction perspective, incorporating social network and social capital theories. Our aim is to enrich and extend current research in entrepreneurship by examining how digital technologies reshape the entrepreneurial process and its outcomes by allowing more social and networked interactions between entrepreneurs, their business partners and customers.
