Abstract

The issue of this paper is the study of social networks of the board of Directors' members (BD) and their use in resource acquisition by the firm. To do this, a case study was conducted. From the results, BD' members of a large company generally have extensive and diverse social networks, internationally and nationally. These networks create, perpetuate and maintain inter-organizational relationships (and personal) that are often long. Also, there is a link between social networks and the acquisition of certain resources by the firm. These resources can be financial (capital increase, debt, mergers, acquisitions, grants), human (advice, expertise, specific information about competitors), commercial (trade agreements in the short or long term business opportunities), policy (government intervention, barriers to regulation) and social (social legitimacy and visibility).
