This paper explores the characteristics of collaboration networks and examines the resources that these networks provide for international new ventures (INVs). The context of this study is the Australian healthcare industry and data were collected through in-depth face interviews. Our results suggest that developing collaborative networks is a strategic process by INVs who view collaboration as key to generating resources. Consistent with previous studies, INVs with diverse collaborative networks are more likely to succeed. Collaboration networks of knowledge and R&D tend to be larger and contain many interconnected strong ties while networks that provide access and connection to international markets tend to be large with many members but sparse as members tend not to be connected with each.
