This thesis contributes to the advancement on the network view of social capital andentrepreneurship, focusing on science-based innovation by observatory social network research. The study has conducted a survey to construct a network map of and network attitudes in Zulu science park (alias name) located in Sweden. The analysis showed that there were relatively positive expectations to utilize network more effectively and efficiently in their business activity with respect to sharing of research skills and resources, as well as social exchange in particular. Currently, the science park seems not yet to take advantage of the potential momentum of the respondents or bottom-up initiatives where tenants maintain the environment mutually under trust. I discuss the merits and challenges in such resource and knowledge sharing in the business development support and governance as a new way of unique business incubator and science-park management, focusing on networking.
