This paper concerns the problem of how network structure has impact on initiation of new business and entrepreneurship. Business network and business relationship have been extensively discussed (Johanson, J & Mattson,L-G, 1988; Håkansson, H., and Walusewski, 2002; Dwyer, F.R., Shurr, H.P. & Sejo, O., 1987). In this research filed and similar to some studies in social science on cohesive networks, cooperation is been the major determinant of the business network. However, researchers in this field mainly concern stability in the relationships connections and research topic like initiation of relationship for new market opportunity have seldom attracted these researchers (Ghauri, Hadjikhani and Johanson, 2005).
