Epistemic proximity and knowledge exchange among IT-entrepreneurs

Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingChapterAcademic

Abstract

In this study, we seek to understand to what extent epistemic proximity affects knowledge exchange among Amsterdam-based IT-entrepreneurs. Epistemic proximity is defined as the extent to which two people share a similar world view enhanced by shared meanings and language. We explore the influence of epistemic proximity on knowledge exchange both conceptually and empirically, controlling for other types of proximity. Analyzing both interview and survey data, we propose epistemic proximity as a notable enabler of knowledge exchange among IT-entrepreneurs.
