The network approach to study how nascent entrepreneurs leverage them to shape their entrepreneurial intentions and get advice and resources to launch businesses is gaining scholarly attention. However, the potential role networking plays for supporting these entrepreneurs remain under-researched in different socio-economic and cultural settings. Additionally, we do not fully know how the network support changes with each phase of the business development continuum -prospecting, startup, and operating. To fill this gap, we seek to investigate how nascent entrepreneurs from various world regions with differing levels of development draw on various types of advisor networks during their business development phases.
