Connectivity between the building of social capital and the building of capital in the economic sense are investigated, in the business context, through case studies of Electrolux, the international corporate white goods manufacturer and one of its key suppliers.

While still at the early stages of understanding insights, regarding the building of social capital and the connectivity of this to economic value at the level of the individual enterprise, are made.
