520    In this book, the authors illustrate how social networks 
       can play a very significant role in the technological 
       catch up process in moderate innovative countries. Using 
       an innovative approach to the study of entrepreneurship in
       knowledge-intensive sectors, the book analyses the role of
       social networks in the access and deployment of the 
       variety of competences and resources required for the 
       successful creation of knowledge-intensive companies, 
       which has not yet been studied sufficiently in this 
       context
