Abstract: The present research points out to investigate how knowledge heterogeneity benefits creativity and innovation of student entrepreneurs. Some authors stressed that the knowledge and social networks are fundamental elements to generate new ideas and inspire future entrepreneurs. Having analysed the data extracted by Kelley et al. (2012) on 300 Master students joining economics and biotech faculties in Europe, through the application of structural equation modelling by using IBM SPSS Amos, we confirmed the importance of social network so as to acquire efficiently new knowledge and to improve innovation performance.
