Paper Title
Networks And Support For Technological Entrepreneurship

The aim of this study is to establish which factors have an impact on collaboration between technological enterprises and support institutions. Factors identified from a review of the subject literature underwent empirical verification based on a 650-element sample of small and medium-sized technological firms. A survey was carried out among the firms using a specially prepared questionnaire. In view of the qualitative nature of the factors influencing collaboration, it was decided to use probit modelling [Albert, Chib 1993]. Analysis was performed using Statistica software. Index Terms- collaboration, networks, probit modelling, technological entrepreneurship.
