The article explores structure emergence of regional complex network of entrepreneurs, by proposing an integrated detection framework of community structure and its evolution based on social capital theory and complex network approach. Simulation of network dynamics, detection of community structure and tracing of network structure changes are integrated to investigate structure emergence and its link with entrepreneurs’ social capital. And the article gives an experimental case about the emergence of stable network structure among a group of college student start-ups. Simulation result using the framework proposed by the article fits with actual network evolution traced in tracing program. The framework is effective and useful in explaining structure emergence of regional complex network of entrepreneurs.
