Given the critical role of high growth new ventures as engines of job creation and wealth (Konczal, 2013), community stakeholders increasingly focus on the formation and success of such ventures.

We sought to understand which media mechanisms influenced legitimacy and culture, leading to more entrepreneurial activity in ecosystems.
