This paper focuses knowledge and networks in the global startup process of science-based ventures. A global startup process is a process of organisational emergence in which ventures engage in the exchange of knowledge, information and other resources with international contacts, to recognise opportunities for business, and prepare for the exploitation of these activities on the global market. We examine how knowledge-related needs change during the global startup process in terms of classification, function, network composition and interaction patterns. We formulate propositions to guide founders in their global startup process in building on theoretical insights and examples.
