In recent years, both academics and practitioners have devoted increasing attention to the role of spatial factors in shaping emerging boundaries and interfaces for organizations. The nature and form of these spaces continues to evolve rapidly, as does their role in shaping social, behavioral and economic outcomes. The effects of these changes and the outcomes they influence is of great interest to both organizations, entrepreneurs and policy makers who seek to drive innovation and ecosystems to support social connection and economic diversification within cities and regions. In this symposium, we include four papers that outline [1] a field experiment examining the barriers in social tie formation for entrepreneurs; [2] the impact of social and spatial enablers on innovation; [3] the relationships among spatial features, structures and interactions on the cognitive activation of social ties; and [4] a study on the influence of space on new venture success. The papers highlight emergent research on ways that spaces and interfaces influence social interaction, networks and innovation.
