Investigating how these levels participate in the diffusion of a type of tie is an important question to be pursued. Summary This study has applied a small worlds epidemic model to the rise of ecommerce as an investment opportunity for venture capitalists. , the process underlying the funding of its startup firms. The epidemic model works well statistically in the presence of key controls, especially contagion effects represented by lagged syndications. Whether ecommerce is the only industry to which the model applies is a question that can be answered in a broader analysis.

Newman et al. caution that Eq. (2) should be used cautiously as a benchmark for the average path length because it does not take into account the fragmentation of the network into isolated components. The greater the percentage of ties constituted by the largest (main) component, the more the Eq. (2) is appropriate for determining the network’s expected average path length. The standard distribution for establishing a random benchmark to assess small-worlds properties is the Poisson. Newman et al.
