Abstract: The functioning of modern social and innovation networks is enabled by a combination of M.S. Granovetter‘s „strength of weak ties“, F. Fukuyama‘s „spontaneous sociability“, and R.D. Putnam‘s „thin trust“. The entrepreneurs that coordinate their relations in innovation networks are faced with a continuous tension of making the independent competitive business decisions and building trust-based relations in their social and economic networks. These tensions call for an adequate integration of individual and collective perspectives in social behaviour of business organizations. The aim of this paper – to reveal the entrepreneurial approaches to decision making and trust building/maintaining in the networked business environments. In this paper, we discuss the main patterns of entrepreneurial decision making, based on S. Sarasvathy‘s theory of effectuation, and present the findings of empirical research on entrepreneurial decision making in complex business environments. The survey has shown that even though respondents operate in environments of similar uncertainty, their entrepreneurial predispositions are quite different. Despite these differences, they regard partnerships and networks as the single most important instrument for managing the environmental risk and uncertainty. We also look into the theoretical aspects of the emergence of inter-organizational trust, and provide the empirical insights into the ways the systemic trust is built in the networks of entrepreneurs. The development of trust in network of organizations contains at least three different stages that are characterised by different level / type of trust, and respective risks calling for the managerial intervention for promoting trust on the network level. The findings are based on the international survey of entrepreneurs and network coordinators.[...]
