Organizations establish routines to build reliable and competitive capabilities. This is especially important for emerging ventures, where resources are thin and time is of the essence. Path dependence, path creation, and effectuation are processes of organizational development influenced to varying degrees by networks of stakeholders. We explored these processes to understand how entrepreneurial networks influence the paths followed or created by emerging technology ventures and to investigate the formation of routines along these paths. In this context, we also examined the influence of funding sources on network and path development.
